Join us to celebrate the book release of "Homeless, not Invisible," a photography documentary by local artist, Sharon Rodriguez.
Sharon Rodriguez has spent the last two years interviewing and photographing the homeless community in Johnson County, Kansas, an affluent suburb of Kansas City. The book features 15 of the individuals she encountered, showcasing their portraits and stories. All photos are presented in black and white with their corresponding stories written in Rodriguez' own hand. The book invites the reader to truly see and experience the life of a homeless individual and is full of surprises, heartbreak and survival.
The reception will be held in the main gallery at InterUrban ArtHouse's new expansion, just behind the Post Office at 8001 Newton OPKS. Rodrgiuez' enlarged photographs will be displayed and available for purchase, as well.
A brief talk from Sharon will be at 6:45 with a short question and answer session afterward.
The event is free, and books are $25, available for purchase anytime throughout the night.
