A Closer Look: 'Seeing Eye to Eye' exhibit

Image of a collage featuring a photo of Marie Hunnicutt as a young girl with her mother and writing that says "This is a picture of me and my momma in the summer of '88. Me and my mom are so much alike that when we fight, it's like fighting with yourself. No one ever wins. But she wins when she threatens to ground me. I love my mom so much. She has always been my support. I do not think that she realizes how much she means to me. She has kept me alive and ticking for the last 15 years. I love her so much. I don't ever want to lose her."

"Me and my mom are so much alike that when we fight, it's like fighting with yourself" writes 17-year-old Marie Hunnicutt on a collage that is part of the Hohenthal Gallery exhibit "Seeing Eye to Eye -- A Cultural Exchange." The show, displayed in room 388 of the Science building, is the culmination of a collaborative project on history, culture and identity that portrait photographer Laena Wilder worked on last year with a small group of teens in Siler City, a rural North Carolina community that is home to a burgeoning Latino population. The exhibit features the teenagers telling stories through drawings, writings, collage and paintings as well as portraits that Wilder took of them using a large format camera. The exhibit runs from Thursday through Jan. 4, 2004. For gallery hours, see the SFSU Exhibits Web page.
