EXAMINING CHANGE: A PHOTOGRAPHIC LOOK AT NORTH TULSA

DESCRIPTION AND GOAL OF EXHIBITION: 
True to the intent of the first exhibit of this project, “The North Tulsa Documentary Project”, which was curated by David Proeber in ‘92, and as stated in the catalogue as “telling the story of a people in crisis, the participants sought to create a visual record or baseline of conditions that resulted from years of neglect.  Their goal was to document the culture, the lifestyles, the living conditions of people who live on the north-side of Tulsa, Oklahoma.”  Living Arts will now compare these photographic documents with new works in a thoughtful and balanced examination of the question “Did anything really change in North Tulsa after these first group of photographs were taken?”

LOCATION OF EXHIBIT:
The exhibit will be mounted in the West End Gallery at Living ArtSpace, 307 E. M.B. Brady St.

Don Thompson and Doyle Sanders
