MOUNTAIN WORKSHOPS EXHIBIT FROM FRANKFORT AVAILABLE THROUGH MARCH 18

The School of Journalism and Broadcasting’s photojournalism program announces the opening of Frankfort | The Land Between at the Mass Media and Technology Hall Gallery.

The exhibition of 37 prints and 22 video stories, collected form the more than 40,000 images and hundreds of hours of video, is the result of WKU Photojournalism’s annual Mountain Workshops. The exhibit is on display through Friday, March 18.

Gallery hours are 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. CT Sunday; 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. CT Monday-Wednesday; and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT Thursday-Friday. Admission is free.

About the exhibit: For one week in late October 2015, more than 140 professional and student visual journalists from across the country gathered in Frankfort to teach one another and improve their skills as visual storytellers. Here we see the glorious dome of political power, and enjoy the beauty of the river called Kentucky. Here we hike the hills and rocky bluffs that tower over it. But mostly, here is where we find the story of a place we know: home. Here we document the lives of our neighbors. Not the rich and famous who control our government and culture, but the worker bees who keep Kentucky buzzing: schoolteachers and kids, hairdressers and dressmakers, storekeepers and shoppers, farmers and truck drivers, moms and dads. This is their story. It’s what the Mountain Workshops are all about. More: To view all of the stories from Frankfort, visit http://www.mountainworkshops.org/
