Come join us for an insightful evening with New England-based photographer Mary Beth Meehan as she takes us through her journey into her passion projects turned commissioned work. She will discuss this in the context of two projects.

  • SeenUnseen, is a community driven portrait project that got its start in Providence, RI and focuses on large-scale portraits of ordinary people within the city.
  • City of Champions is a documentary project and celebrated body of work created from her hometown of Brockton, MA.

Mary Beth will show us how her personal work has led her to winning grants; making her projects come to fruition.

We will be giving away a Bob Korn $130 print. The value of the print is $130 - 20x30 image on 24x34 paper (red ticket). We'll be raffling off a ThinkTank Urban Approach 5 bag ($119).

Chapter Event

Mary Beth Meehan is a photographer and educator whose work asks communities to reflect upon themselves. Through image and text, combined with large-scale public installation, her goal is to create connections among people, to raise questions about what divides us, and to inspire a curiosity and empathy that transcend economics, politics, culture, and race.

Her work has been exhibited and published internationally, and her photographic installations have gained critical recognition, while prompting important conversations and connections in the communities in which they were made.
