What does it mean to be human? And how does humanity as a whole impact the earth, its other inhabitants and the environment? One thing is clear, human hands can change everything. The question remains, will our final impact on the planet be for better or worse?
Glimpses of Humanity is a photography and mixed media art exhibit that explores the human aspect through paint, paper and photograph. Throughout the work you will find signs of the human element in obvious ways–faces, hands, roads; as well as through more subtle clues of humanity's presence–like an expansive view of nature reminding us of our role in keeping the earth. We invite you to look intently at every piece and let the power, profoundness and responsibility of what it means to be human affect you.
