Life in Art Presentation May 17
Be-Longing, Linn-Benton Community College’s third Life in Art project, brings together five trios of Corvallis Multicultural Literacy Center community members, LBCC poets, Photo Arts Guild members, and other local photographers.
Local writers and photographers interviewed literacy center community members, listened to their life stories, and photographed them.
This collaboration between LBCC and the CMLC, on the theme of Be-Longing, has sparked two creative portraits—a poem and a photograph—of each participant.
The show will be on display at the Corvallis Multicultural Literacy Center, 128 SW 9th Street, during the Corvallis Arts Walk on May 17 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. and continuing through June 30.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. CMLC is not currently wheel-chair accessible.
Life in Art furthers LBCC’s mission to promote meaningful, diverse and resonant relationships within our community and shows how the arts, particularly poetry, have the power to penetrate to the heart of a matter and there unwrap understanding and weave new connections.
The project was devised and directed by LBCC’s Poetry Advisory Group and Poetry Club in collaboration with Corvallis Multicultural Literacy Center’s staff and leadership.
