A little bit about the exhibit:
Frames draw and focus our attention to what lies inside them; they can deepen our insights. Frames also remove features from our sight; if we ignore what lies outside them, we miss an opportunity to broaden our perspective. This exhibition frames several important elements of our Northwest Indiana history—de-urbanization, life in the mills, experiences of homelessness—and reframes them by placing them alongside each other and in the context of first-person stories of neighborhood life and resilience. Viewers can interact with the exhibit in many ways: add thoughts and memories to the exhibit, map childhood homes, browse reading material from NWI authors in the reading room, interview family and friends at the audio station, or bring historical photographs to scan, print, and add to the exhibit.
Featured work includes the Welcome Project’s Flight Paths initiative, Aimee Tomasek’s photographic series, “Hot Idle, LTV Steel,” woodcut prints by Corey Hagelberg, and The Invisible Project, a traveling exhibit that makes visible stories of homelessness in Porter County through storytelling, infographics, and art.
Exhibit lasts: October 28 – November 13, 2016
Gallery Open: Fridays and Saturdays 6-9pm, Sundays 1-4pm
