Kane Gallery Hosts Traveling Exhibit about Families
Posted 09/22/2015 02:15PM

What makes a family? And what does “family” mean?

A current exhibit of photographs in Fenn’s Kane Gallery seeks to help children and adults expand their knowledge of people beyond those in their immediate families and neighborhoods.

It depicts some twenty families that represent a variety of configurations including adoptive and foster families, divorced and stepfamilies, single parent families, multiracial families, families living with disabilities, lesbian and gay-parented families, multigenerational families, and more.

The traveling exhibit is titled “In our family: Portraits of All Kinds of Families.”

Director of Diversity Tete Cobblah hopes the exhibit, which includes text, “evokes emotion and personal connections to the photos” and that “members of our community will hear their own voices and stories as they tour the gallery.”

The show “challenges stereotypes and helps dismantle prejudice by celebrating and affirming differences of all kinds,” he adds.

The exhibit runs until October 23 and is timed to coincide with Fenn’s annual Respecting Differences Day, to be held this year on October 8. The gallery is open Monday through Friday during school hours.
