Voices of Diversity – Opening Reception
January 17, 2009 - 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
This exhibit is a composite photographic portrait of the Syracuse Community Choir by the acclaimed photographer Lida Suchy. It is made up of a large number of 8×10″ view camera portraits of individual members in an attempt to visually articulate some of what makes the Community Choir unique, both as individuals and as a group. For more than 20 years, the Syracuse Community Choir has been an important voice in the Central New York community, actively promoting the ideas of social justice, peace and inclusiveness. This photography exhibition foregrounds the potential of art/singing as a powerful tool for fostering broad social inclusiveness and community building.
