Rebecca Skinner's exhibition "Ghosts of Katrina: Five Years Revisited" can be seen through Thursday, Nov. 11, in Gallery 234, Room 004 of the University of Wyoming Union in Laramie.
A reception for the artist is scheduled in the gallery Thursday, Oct. 21, from 6-7 p.m. Skinner will share her experiences photographing New Orleans and the ways in which the culture has been effected by the Katrina disaster Friday, Oct. 22, at 4 p.m. at the Albany County Public Library (310 S. 8th St.). Both events are free and open to the public.
A UW social work student, Skinner says her photography has led her to "many incredible places in the world and has made it possible to work with some of the best companies in the outdoor industry, such as The North Face and Isis."
Combining her love for people and photography, she says she hopes to be a professional photographer with a focus on social justice issues.
