ABOUT: Where Sidewalks End will explore how neighborhoods and communities can become disconnected as a result of infrastructure. In this exhibition a group of photographers will explore and bring awareness to how our citizens can become marginalized by living in areas without connectivity to the assets and amenities that exist for people that own a personal vehicle or live in neighborhoods with access to retail, medical and public transportation.

When sidewalks are overgrown, not maintained or do not exist in a community people are forced to walk in the shoulder of the roadway or if limited by age or physical impairment become isolated in their homes.

The exhibition also looks at solutions to infrastruture issues underway in our region that address reconnecting people to the larger community and the resources that reinvigorate neighboorhoods and lay the groundwork for creating safer, healthy and walkable communities.

Throughout the exhibition we will seek public input on potential solutions from community members who will also be invited to tell personal stories. Photographers will be invited to document where their Sidewalks end online.
