Through Our Eyes Opening Reception | January 23

On Thursday, January 23, 2014, between 6 – 7:30pm, the Grove Hall Branch of the Boston Public Library will host the Through Our Eyes Opening Reception event at 41 Geneva Avenue in Dorchester.

This exhibit features work by Elliot Lee. These photographs of Roxbury and Dorchester landscapes explore the history of gentrification in Boston and its impact on our community.

Patricia Patti Lee is a photographer who was born and raised in the South End and recently transplanted to Upham’s Corner, Dorchester. Her father Elliot Lee left her his works in slide and print form. His pictures cover the early ’70s to the late ’90s and include skylines, street scenes, and portraits. As a social worker, he was interested in murals, advertising billboards, and the many faces of the city.

This event is free and is open to the public for more information on contact Grove Hall Branch 617-427-3337
