The C.H. Nash Museum at Chucalissa will display an exhibit of photographs by students participating in the Leaders Implementing Foresight Everyday (L.I.F.E.) program at the Charles Powell Community Center in southwest Memphis. “Neighborhood Communication: L.I.F.E. as Process” will be on display Aug. 1 through Sept. 3.

An opening reception will be held at the C.H. Nash Museum Aug. 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. There is no charge to attend the reception or to view the exhibit.

 The students worked with University of Memphis Art Department faculty and students, the staff of the Art Museum of the U of M, and staff members of the Community Center to create a photo/video record of their communities.

The exhibit features 14 photographs taken in neighborhood settings with captions that ask provocative questions. The banner-like photographs include portraits, self-portraits, and neighborhood scenes. The students also produced short interviews with people they consider to be role models in their communities. “We are excited to have an exhibit created by the youth from the community surrounding Chucalissa displayed at the C.H. Nash Museum,” said Museum Director Robert Connolly.

Operated by the University of Memphis, the C.H. Nash Museum at Chucalissa serves as a gateway to understanding the science of archaeology and the interpretation of Native American history. The museum exhibits illustrate the pre-history of the Mid-South as well as contemporary Southeastern Indian cultures.

Chucalissa is located at 1987 Indian Village Drive in southwest Memphis. For more information, call Robert Connolly at 901-785-3160.
