Photo exhibit documenting “unseen” parts of community opens May 31

“Unseen Morgantown” is a photovoice project produced by WVU’s Injury Control Research Center (ICRC) and Milan Puskar Health Right. Photovoice is a method through which individuals use photographs to document their lived experiences and act as potential catalysts for social change. For the past nine weeks, Health Right clients have been learning the art of photography and using their cameras to document their lives and surroundings, shedding light on the people, places, and dynamics that often go unseen in the Morgantown community.

The exhibit opens in the Monongalia Arts Center with a reception on Thursday, May 31, 6-8 p.m., and will run through Saturday, June 2, 2018.

The theatre is open Monday-Friday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m., and Saturday, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

The project is co-sponsored by the Monongalia County Prevention Coalition and funded in part by the Harrison County Family Resource Network and Project SUCCESS through a grant from the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources. WVU ICRC provided matching funds for the project.
