In Plain Sight – Homelessness Exposed, a photography art exhibit brought to us by Sts. Joachim and Ann Care Service, is aimed at creating awareness for the growing concern over poverty in St. Charles, Lincoln and Warren county communities. The exhibit will be on display at the Lincoln County Court House from October 23 through October 30.
Designed to put a face on the harsh realities of poverty, the project has enlisted the help of homeless individuals themselves to tell their stories through the lens of a camera. In Plain Sight serves to provide the homeless with a strong voice in hopes of eliciting action and impacting change in our local communities.
The public is invited to a special reception on Tuesday, October 24 at the Lincoln County Courthouse from 4pm to 6pm. All are encouraged to also visit the project website at www.InPlainSight.live, to take an audio visual tour of the exhibit or to make a donation in support of Care Service programs.
Local sponsors of In Plain Sight – Homelessness Exposed include Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital/Progress West Hospital, Ameren Missouri, Calvary Church, Behlmann Automotive – Troy, the Annual Catholic Appeal, Mercy, and Winning Technologies.
