Community Arts Center hosts Global City Photo Exhibit through May 5

HANCOCK -- The 2nd Annual Global City Photo Exhibit is at the Copper Country Community Arts Center’s Kerredge Gallery through Saturday, May 5. Twenty outstanding photographs capture life in categories such as the planet, people, sustainability, and "glocal."

The photos are offered for sale to benefit next year’s Global City programs. Global City is a student organization at Michigan Tech dedicated to addressing critical, global issues, especially those that most directly impact developing countries. Its three main goals are these: 1) to foster cooperation and understanding among nationals of different countries, 2) to promote interest in international affairs such as the environment, human rights, technology transfer, poverty, development, and sustainability, and 3) to provide a forum for the presentation of innovative ideas to benefit the university and the world community.

These photos were displayed in April at the Vertin Gallery in Calumet and at the Keweenaw Brewing Company in Houghton. If you missed them or wish to see them again, please visit the Community Arts Center, 126 Quincy Street in Hancock, by this Saturday.

Hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. and Saturday 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.
