If these walls could talk

May 7, 2013 

Over the past year, residents of Columbia’s Gonzales Gardens and Lyon Street neighborhoods collaborated with seven artists to create a tapestry of their lives through photos. The result is Community Visions, sponsored by USC’s College of Social Work, the Community Empowerment Center and the Institute for African American Research (IAAR). It features photos that show how the communities see themselves and what they want others to see about them. An exhibit of 12 photos in the 21-photo collection will open Tuesday. A reception is 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Benedict College Business Development Center, 2601 Read St.
