How do Chicagoans in need “view” our city? One local program shows us that talent can come from all walks of life. 

On Friday, June 10 and Saturday, June 11 the 14th Annual Catholic Charities After Supper Visions free art exhibit will showcase more than 50 photographers who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Participants of the program learn basic photography skills from a professional photographer and are given disposable cameras to take photos from their perspective throughout the city. 

 The annual exhibit is set up like an art gallery at Catholic Charities headquarters in the River North neighborhood. Attendees have a chance to visit with the homeless photographers and learn about the photographer’s perspective on their photos. Prints and note cards are available for purchase at the art exhibit. Artists use the profits to help with security deposits for apartments, paying utility bills, buying food or purchasing digital cameras to encourage their new passion.

WHEN: Friday, June 10, 5-7 p.m. Opening Reception, Saturday, June 11, 1-3 p.m.

WHERE: Catholic Charities, St. Vincent Hall, 721 N… LaSalle in downtown Chicago
