Sunday February 19th
All Day
Identity, Energy, and Communication: Jin Man Jo
Location: FAC Gallery

Thick steel bends during forging and hammering. Thin wires worked together show interconnectedness. Weak materials, overlapping and interconnecting with each other, become strong.  Each piece makes an undeniable contribution to the whole. 

JinMan Jo enjoys and respects everything about making sculpture. The process itself is much like life: some things are easier, and some are more difficult. Complications can be worked through step by step. He enjoys this pursuit, the time spent in processing.  He works slowly and steadily, almost ceremoniously.  For him, it is a time of deep reflection and an opportunity to connect with others and tell his story.

JinMan Jo’s work has been shown widely throughout the United States and in Korea. His solo exhibition at WKU will host several works of his sculpture to share with our students faculty and community. This exhibition is curated by Professor David Marquez.

9:00am - 4:00pm

PHOTO EXHIBIT -- Living On A Dollar A Day: The lives and faces of the world’s poor
Location: MMTH Gallery and Atrium, 1666 Normal Drive, WKU Campus

The School of Journalism & Broadcasting is excited to offer a photographic and interactive exhibition of photographs that promises to change the way you look at the world.

Living On A Dollar A Day: The Lives and Faces of the World’s Poor, is a powerful and extraordinary series of photographs and profiles by Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist Renée C. Byer, whose work illuminates the human faces of people who live in extreme poverty around the world. Traveling to 10 countries on four continents, Byer sought out individuals and families on the brink of survival – living on about one U.S. dollar each day.

The people in Byer’s compelling profiles share their hardships, their joys, and their dreams for the future with her. Often with little hope of changing their own destiny, they dream of something better for their children. In her searing and tender images, accompanied by stories shared by people whose trust she gained, Byer gives voice to those who would not otherwise be heard.

The exhibit will be available beginning Thursday, Feb. 16, through Friday, April 28.
