In the Picture 

"Unsheltered: Unseen" is an exhibit that hopes to heighten community awareness by revealing to the public "unseen" areas of Memphis. Organized by a group of Rhodes College students, the exhibit will showcase 80 photographs of Memphis captured by members of minority groups.

The students distributed more than 80 disposable cameras at Idlewild Presbyterian Church's More Than Art and More Than A Meal program, Rhodes' Souper Contact soup kitchen, and the Manna House, a homeless outreach program. Participants were asked to photograph Memphis from their own perspective, and nearly 40 people responded.

The intent of the exhibit is to bridge population gaps and to connect all members of the Memphis community. The students want to illuminate the often ignored issues in Memphis to stimulate change, particularly in the homeless community.

All works will be for sale, with proceeds going to local hunger and homelessness programs. Rhodes CODA (Center for Outreach in the Development of the Arts) and Idlewild Presbyterian Church are sponsoring the event. For more information, contact Justin Deere at
