Rutland Regional Medical Center, in partnership with Project Vision, will host a reception featuring the work of Project Vision’s Photo Voice Project on Wednesday, April 6 from 12noon-1pm at Rutland Regional Medical Center. The public is invited to meet the photographers and hear remarks from Tom Huebner of Rutland Regional, Scott Tucker and Mary Cohen of Project Vision and photography coordinator Donna Goodhale.
Project Vision’s Photo Voice photographs are on display at Rutland Regional on the main floor for the next few months. The Photo Voice project highlights the work of nine residents of Rutland’s northwest neighborhood as they captured gritty, hopeful and inspiring moments. The nine photographers includes: Sherri Durgin-Campbell, a mediator; Sharon Davis, RN, Rutland City Alderwoman; sisters Elivia and Evangeline Lapre, middle school students; Stacie Mincher, artist; Cindy Murray, teacher; Nick Santoro, sculptor; Dylan Smith, a junior at Rutland High School; and James Tibbits, a resident of Dismas House.
“Showcasing the photographs from the Photo Voice project is an opportunity to celebrate the work of these nine photographers and the hopeful and inspirational work of Project Vision,” says Mary Nemeth, Vice President of Support Services at Rutland Regional. “We’re honored to have this work at Rutland Regional and share in Project Vision’s goal to make Rutland one of the healthiest, safest and happiest places in America.”
