Photography Exhibit

The LOOK! Forward Photography Exhibit will return this summer and be on display at the Richland Library in downtown Columbia from June 1 through August 17.

This exhibit showcases the beauty and strength of children, teens and young adults who are living rich, full lives despite their disability or special healthcare need. The photos truly capture the personalities and strength of those featured, allowing others to easily connect and see them with their hearts.

Made possible by to our title sponsor Groucho's Deli and all our supporters and donors throughout the community. Thanks.

Last year, thanks to the generosity of 27 Midlands area photographers, the exhibit featured 50 children, teens and adults. Family Connection developed the LOOK! project in response to often heard comments from the families we serve. “I wish that the world would really see my child and not just their disability!”
