Latent Image Collective: Love Letters to Power
Saturday, May 27, 6 – 8 pm
at 516 ARTS
Join Latent Image Collective as they hit the sidewalk in front of 516 ARTS with a follow-up to their Taking Pictures pop-up events for PhotoSummer. This year, during the opening reception for Fires of Change and Landscapes of Life and Death, the group presents Love Letters to Power. Expanding on their theme of offering prints from a world-wide group of photographers, the Latent Image Collective is creating the prints to give away in postcard form. Audience members get to pick out a print to use to send a note to your elected officials and remind them that there is no humanity without the arts. In addition, by sending a postcard of original art, the sender and recipient are connected to one another through art and the written word. Making connections like this, across time and space, is one of photography’s greatest gifts.
