New Photography Exhibit at Mandel School Explores Images of Poverty

Oct 7 2014

GetajobSantagoPicture1It was the images of poverty in rural Appalachia by photographers Billy Barnes, John Dominis and Andrew Stern that brought poverty to light as a major social problem facing a relatively affluent America of the late 1950s and early 1960s. Their photographs helped stir the American conscience to respond to Lyndon Johnson’s 1964 call for an unconditional War on Poverty.

As 2013-2014 President of the Society for the Study of Social Problems, Mandel School faculty member Anna Maria Santiago, the Leona Bevis and Marguerite Haynam Professor of Community Development, invited professional and amateur photographers from across the country to send in images depicting what poverty looks like today and who is affected by it in the aftermath of the Great Recession. The images of more than two dozen artists are part of her multimedia essay, “Fifty Years Later: From a War on Poverty to a War on the Poor,” that will be presented on October 7, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. in the Senior Classroom at Tinkham Veale University Center. This lecture is free and open to the public. Please RSVP to diversity-rsvp@case.edu.

Santiago has collaborated with the Mandel School Art Gallery to present an exhibit, “From a War on Poverty to a War on the Poor: Images of Poverty in the Post-Great Recession Period” to coincide with her public presentation of this multimedia essay. This exhibit will be shown throughout the month of October. Cleveland artists represented in this exhibit include: Susan Griffith, Victor Groza, June Hund, Mark Krieger, and Angie Schmitt. Also represented are Nathan Lanthrum, Chicago; Richard Smith, Detroit; and a professional photographer known as luxorphoto.

Also featured is the work of Cleveland resident Jan Thrope, MSW and Director of Inner Visions of Cleveland, a non-profit organization that supports community improvement projects. Jan has assembled as protractive body of work of both photographs and intriguing commentary that addresses the problems of poverty in the city of Cleveland. The name of her traveling exhibit is “Sites that Hurt and Visions that Heal.” The sites that “hurt” are located on the first floor of the gallery and depict scenes that children commonly see in their neighborhoods. On the second floor of the gallery, Jan’s photos show “visions that heal,” documenting how community residents are responding to poverty in a productive and positive manner.

Stop by the Mandel School Art Gallery during school hours to see this insightful exhibit. For further information about the artists, please contact gallery curator June Hund (june.hund@case.edu or 216-368-0722) or Anna Maria Santiago (anna.santiago@case.edu).
