“WITH HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS” — Reflections on the Permanent Collection
Soon to be displayed in the downstairs gallery, from March 1-May 12, is an exhibition drawn from the permanent collection of the museum featuring some of its most iconic imagery. The curation and context of the show has been provided by the students of Daytona State College, including sections of Professor Jayanti Seiler’s class “Photography as an Art Form.”

“A HOUSE IS NOT A HOME” — Works by Brooke DiDonato
Accompanying the permanent collection photographs will be the work of Brooke DiDonato. Born and raised in Ohio, she is now based in New York City. She graduated with a degree in photojournalism from Kent State University in 2012. Her work explores the complexity of human cognition, and what happens when psychological anomalies manifest in reality. By placing viewers in the context of a narrative with no clear beginning or end, she forces them to ask “How did we get here?,” “What happens next?” and “Can we go on?” “A House is Not a Home” is a series of self-portraits conveying feelings of isolation and discontent experienced when returning to her hometown in Ohio.
