Art Show Exhibition

On and Off the Street

Street Photography is thought of as capturing subject matter in the public realm. However, in both historic and contemporary practice, images have been made in overlapping areas surrounding individual space. The distinction between public and private becomes blurred. This exhibition, featuring Inland and SoCal photographers, is an examination of that intersection. Join us for the opening reception to meet and mingle with the artists.

6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18
