Exhibit Closing Reception: He Who Lendeth to the Poor

Last summer, several Hope College Borgeson Scholar Program students focused their studies on meeting with and learning about the homeless population in Holland and Grand Rapids. The result of their work is a series of 20 photographs—including many portraits—of the local homeless community. Showcased together for the first time, the photographs help illustrate the stories of these individuals and encourage personal reflection on our responsibility to the poor.

Join the museum in celebrating the work of these students as we mark exhibit’s final weeks in our Focus Gallery.
