Sky is Falling: Chad Cochran & Jeff Swensen

APRIL 4-MAY 3

The show “The Sky Is Falling” featuring photographers Chad Cochran and Jeff Swensen, presents images of people and places that force us to examine how we interpret the world around us.  Are we afraid as we look at these images? Are we intrigued by the unknown? How we experience the world has very much to do with these personal interpretations.  When we assume there is eminent danger it informs everything we do.  The sky may or may not be falling.  We can courageously experience the world or hide from it based on our fear that the worst may happen. 
Opening Reception Friday, April 4th from 7-9 pm
in the Dianne Boldman Education Gallery
