MN- August 24th Photo Exhibition

The McKnight Foundation is hosting an exhibition of photography by David Eberhardt. The Foundation commissioned Eberhardt to photograph its grantees' work along the Mekong in Southeast Asia.

Eberhardt traveled to villages, towns, and homes, obtaining a variety of photographs documenting Foundation projects and individual lives.

The opening reception is August 24, 20065:00 to 7:30 pm, 710 Second Street South, Suite 400 Minneapolis, MN 55401

Eberhardt traveled to Laos and Cambodia last year with Bruce Shoemaker, a consultant for the McKnight who has worked in Laos for close to 20 years. Also, two Lao women from the Salavan area will be attending the show. Both women work for an organization in Laos that received a McKnight grant to work with villagers on land rights.
