Community In Focus: Photographs & Stories Of Olneyville
January 28th - March 24th
Reception February 19th, 5pm - 7pm
Community in Focus: Photographs and Stories of Olneyville is an oral history and photo exhibit showcasing the diverse culture and history of the Olneyville community. Undertaken as part of Olneyville Housing's 25th Anniversary Celebration, the exhibit celebrates life in Olneyville by pairing 25 striking portraits of Olneyville residents, artists, merchants and other neighborhood luminaries with their recorded reminiscences. This unique photographic and oral history exploration of the neighborhood goes beyond traditional historic resources such as archives, newspaper clippings, old maps and photos to more intimately understand community history. The exhibit engages the community in a revisiting of memory, a creation of art, and a celebration of neighborhood pride.
