Mt. Sterling: Gateway to the Heart exhibition
January 30, 2019 - March 1, 2019Free
Warm up your cold days by planning a visit to an exhibition of photographs and video short stories that will warm your heart and allow you a few moments to slow down and take in the some of the simpler things in life. Mt. Sterling and surrounding Montgomery County sit nestled between Kentucky’s bluegrass meadows and Appalachian mountains. A lovely town surrounded by rolling farmland, it is a place where people value their rich history and strive for a brighter future. With helping hands, a welcoming heart and a strong sense of identity, Mt. Sterling is the kind of place that feels like home.
During one week in October of 2018, a small army of visual journalists from across the country and around the globe descended on this community just outside of Lexington and documented her people and this place situated at the gateway to Eastern Kentucky. For more information about this event, visit the Mountain Workshops web site.
The exhibition is located on the campus of Western Kentucky University in Jody Richards Hall and is open Monday – Friday 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. except for when the school is closed.
This exhibition is sponsored by The School of Journalism & Broadcasting’s Photojournalism department and Canon, USA Imageprograf.
