Current Exhibition:

Listening Across Generations: Fractured Narratives Youth Collaboration

My Friends Listen to MeListening is something hardly anyone does enough of, but local youth are documenting it as part of a community photography project. When Eric Gottesman, one of the artists in the spring semester exhibition Fractured Narratives: A Strategy to Engage, visited Muncie to talk about his work, he also met with localyouths. He listened to them and helped them map where they are heard, who hears them, and where they listen to others. Together, while viewing the exhibition, they discussed what makes a good photograph.

Professor Ruby Cain and her EDAC 698 adult and community education graduate students in the class Cultural Identities and Community Engagement coordinated the participants for the project. These graduate students are working with the staff and listening to the youth of the Boys and Girls Club, Buley Center, Friends of Conley, and Motivate Our Minds.

DOMA is proud to include Listening Across Generations as part of the Muncie Sesquicentennial. Join us for the opening reception of the first photography exhibition of its kind. All are welcome.
