Hi. I needed to not blog for a while. I'm sure you know exactly what I'm talking about. But now I'm back and well rested from the blogosphere. I want to tell you about an event in downtown Provo (my town) called the 30 Strangers exhibit. What is the 30 Strangers Exhibit? I'll tell you. A brilliant man and fine art photographer by the name of Justin Hackworth spent 30 days in April photographing 30 mothers and daughters whom he had never met. Instead of charging a sitting fee, he asked the ladies to donate the money to the Center for Women and Children in Crisis. I'm telling you, this man is my hero. Today (Friday, July 2nd), you can come and see these gorgeous portraits of mothers and daughters between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. at 26 West, Center St. in Provo. For a $75 donation to the center you can also book a mother/daughter portrait sitting at the exhibit tonight as well. I'm definitely going to be signing up for that!
I love people who find creative ways to help out in their community. That's why I'm really excited to be on a committee with Justin Hackworth as well as Courtney Kendrick and Sarah Wiley to help breathe new life in downtown Provo. We're working on some fun ideas for the downtown we love so much. But for now, you can support both downtown and women and children in crisis at the same time by stopping by the 30 Starngers event tonight. I'll see you there!
