Reception kicks off City Hall photo show

TERRE HAUTE — Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett is hosting a photographic art show at City Hall, beginning with a reception at 5 p.m. today.

The event is in partnership with Indiana State University’s Community School of the Arts and the Institute for Community Sustainability, according to a press release.

Bennett has committed 2014 to advocating for wellness with a series of 52 events to promote healthier lifestyles and increase the quality of life for those living in the area. The art show will take place in the stairwell of City Hall to encourage staff and visitors to burn more calories and less electricity by taking the stairs instead of the elevator.

The Community School of the Arts provides classes to community members for infants through senior citizens in music, theater and visual arts.

“We are thrilled to be part of the “Wellness” exhibition at City Hall,” said Petra Nyendick, the program’s director. “The artworks in this show depict interpretation of a healthy community and implicitly demonstrate that artistic engagement has a positive effect on citizens.”  

The art show is a digital photography exhibition by adult students enrolled in a beginning photography class. The featured work is on display in the stairwell of City Hall until March 14. This event is open and free of charge to the community.
