Yesterday evening I had the pleasure of attending a reception and photography exhibit at LUMA – the Loyola University Museum of Art. The photographer Noah Addis captured positive images of individuals moving from homelessness to housing. Sponsored by Loyola’s Center for Urban Research and Learning (CURL) and the Chicago Alliance to End Homelessness among others, the exhibit confronts the dominant stereotypes that homeless individuals are helpless street beggars or that organizations serving them are just providing handouts without addressing long-term solutions. Many of the subjects were present at the lecture, and they were eager to tell their stories. The exhibit will be at LUMA until January 15th. It is free for Loyola students. LUMA is located in Lewis Towers, entrance across the street from the Old Water Tower on the east side of the building.
