Long-time Nashuans, and newcomers to the city, are showcased with an exhibit of their portraits and personal stories at the Nashua Public Library in February.
Greg Indruk and Lauren Osowski created the Nashua Neighbors Photography Project after a series of conversations they had recognizing Nashua as the most diverse city in New Hampshire. They wanted to give locals a chance to share their stories and get to know their neighbors.
“Our city is home to people from many different countries, ethnicities, and backgrounds,” said Osowski, Director of Adult Education at the Adult Learning Center. “Although each person has a different story, we are the same in so many ways, and we become stronger as a community when we take the time to learn about each other.”
Meet the artists
Indruk, who has been friends with Osowski since high school, took the photographs for the exhibit, and Osowski interviewed the subjects. You can meet them at an artists’ reception at the library on Thursday, February 15, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Human books on display
Several of the subjects of the exhibit will participate in the library’s Human Book Festival on Sunday, February 25, when attendees can sit down with them for one-on-one conversations. More information on that event is available at www.tinyurl.com/npllectures.
The library is located at 2 Court Street, Nashua. For directions and parking information go to www.nashualibrary.org/visit/directions. For other information contact Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org or (603) 589-4610.
