Under the Surface is a photographic exhibit by young people at the Northwest Passage, a residential treatment program in Northern Wisconsin. “A New Light” is a therapeutic nature photography program that emphasizes skilled expressive arts training and nature immersion, ultimately empowering marginalized youth to define themselves by their strengths rather than their weaknesses. The exhibit will be on display in the Alicia Ashman Library community room from November through December 2018.
