A Place for Us, Exhibit and Reception

Join us for a reception in honor of the opening of the new exhibit, A Place for Us: The Challenges of Housing in Athens and Surrounding Areas. This spring, as part of the Russell~Roosevelt Public Policy Institute, volunteers from Athens and surrounding counties took photographs that reflected their sense of housing challenges present in their communities. These images form the basis of the exhibit, A Place for Us. New and historical footage of the Athens area from 1946 and from 2007 complement these visual reflections. The Walter J. Brown Media Archives and Peabody Awards Collection provided the 1946 footage and the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies provided the new 2007 footage. This exhibit will be on display from June 22 through August 31, 200. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
