Collected during various service experiences coordinated through the Shoval Center for Engagement and Learning, King’s College students and staff will display photographs that reflect the social justice issues of hunger and homelessness during a free public exhibition, titled “Hungering for Justice,” from Monday, Nov. 4, through Dec. 13 in the Widmann Gallery.
“The exhibit is a testament to the pervasive social justice problems that plague our world,” said Kim Fabbri, community outreach coordinator and organizer of the exhibit. “Our pictures represent not only King’s service across the country, but also the hours our volunteers have spent in communion with the poor and oppressed in Wilkes-Barre.”
Artists and service sites include Justina Cerefin, Clintwood, Va.; Gianna Cordasco, San Antonio, Texas; Emily Dishong, San Antonio, Texas; Kelly Gibbons, Valatie, N.Y.; Christine Guarino, Big Brothers/ Big Sisters, Wilkes-Barre; Alex Heavilon, Clintwood, Va.; Nicole Lawler, Pittsburgh; Brother George Schmitz, C.S.C., director, McGowan Hispanic Outreach Program at King’s, Durham, N.C.; and Emily Kesserling, Dan Flood Elementary, Wilkes-Barre.
The Widmann Gallery is located in the Sheehy-Farmer Campus Center, located between North Franklin and North Main streets. Gallery hours: Mon. through Fri., 9 a.m.- 4:30 p.m.; Sat. and Sun., as arranged. For more information, contact Widmann Gallery Coordinator Michelle Leonard at (570) 208-5900, ext. 5328.
