   Event Description :

Photos from the Unsheltered: Unseen project organized by Rhodes College students will be showcased Friday, April 26, at Crosstown Arts located at 430 N. Cleveland. Free and open to the public, the show is from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Unsheltered: Unseen is focused on providing those experiencing homeless with an avenue for artistic expression and communicating these unique perspectives to a wider audience. Approximately 25 participants will be displaying their art, which is photography. Some of the images in this yearís show include self-portraits, interior scenes, and the Memphis landscape. Over the past four years, the project has distributed over 350 cameras and displayed approximately 235 photographs. The commission given to each artist has been simply, "Use this camera to capture your Memphis."

This year, Unsheltered: Unseen has partnered with Idlewild Presbyterian, Manna House, First Congressional Church, H.O.P.E., and St. Johnís Methodist Church.

All photos will be on sale at the show - $20.00 for 8 x 10" - and the money will be donated to an organization of each artist's choice.
