20/20
20/20 is the continued celebration of everyday life inspired by a box of abandoned vintage photographs. This series explores the mysteries and histories hiding in common snapshots which would otherwise be lost to dwindling memories and poor documentation. We will see an oil painting timeline of 20 frozen moments from 1920 to 2020 sprinkled with historical tidbits you never knew you needed to know.
Brandon Ahnert
Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution
Through this exhibition, Ahnert investigates how music –Rock and Roll in this case – isn’t just background noise. It is something that enhances our lives and can help tie us to others and our experiences.
LTHC Homeless Services
Voices of Homelessness
This work traces the strength, diligence, accomplishments, and obstacles of a group of Tippecanoe County residents in various stages of homelessness. Though Greater Lafayette continues to grow and thrive, the city looks very different for people who do not have a home. Using disposable cameras, the artists featured spent weeks taking photos of their daily lives. Through documentary photography and portraiture this exhibition group of work reveals often-overlooked stories of people experiencing homelessness in our community.

Over the course of a year, LTHC and their guests invited a group of Purdue students to help facilitate the gathering of stories from people experiencing homelessness. Participants were given cameras and a month to document their daily lives. Each image on its own offers a narrative, but running through all the pieces crucial themes persist, such as faith, work, gratitude, and support offered by LTHC Homeless Services and the community.
