March to March: A Year of Unrest, Uncertainty and Unknowns

October 12, 2021 - November 11, 2021

Free

Gallery exhibition features 68 images and three short-form documentary films from 19 different WKUPJ alumni photojournalists who were assigned to capture our unprecedented times.

 

The third month of the year 2020 brought great change to how our nation and our world would go about living daily life. A pandemic not seen on such a scale since 1918 touched every community, shutting down businesses, entertainment, travel and choking our economy and health care system. And like many issues in this divided country, it became political. Protests erupted over mask mandates, political ideology and racism. A nation under siege became exhausted.

 

Spring turned to summer, and summer to fall, then fall to winter. Soon it was March again. A new year for hope, but still communities struggled to understand and cope with the ripple effects of COVID-19.

 

On the front lines of all the news was a group of dedicated photojournalists, often risking their own health to tell the important stories.

 

March to March, A Year of Unrest, Uncertainty and Unknowns, looks at the work of nineteen WKU photojournalism alumni and how their presence allows us to bear witness to history unraveling before our very eyes. Five decades of experience, generations of graduates come together to tell the complete story of an extraordinary year.

 

The exhibit is free and open to the public in the Jody Richards Hall Gallery and Atrium through November 11. Hours of the gallery are Monday through Wednesday 9:00 am to 9:00 pm and Thursday 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.
