"Our Journey" - The exhibit is still on display
Chicagoland Photographer Jim Morris and Sisters Network Vice President Annie Jones had an idea. The idea sprung from the 10th anniversary of the Sisters Network Chicago Chapter Fashion Show Luncheon and Fundraiser. What if we chronicled the history of the Sisters Network in Chicago tracing its roots back to the beginning in 2001. The chapter had made such great strides over the year (increasing its membership, holding a national conference and securing generous donations from sponsors), it was important to let the people of Chicago share in the chapter's journey.
Over the span of 6 months, Morris and the members of the Chicago chapter scoured their photo albums to find photos that would document the journey of the chapter. Led by President Bevely Gavin, over 50 photos are displayed on the first floor of the Carter G. Woodson library. This free exhibit located at 9525 South Halsted Street in Chicago shows the journey of the more than 50 members who have particpated, assisted and given their time and effort to help grow the Sisters Network Chicago Chapter.
"Having worked with the Sisters since 2001, I thought it was important that this special story of triumph and survival be shown through the power of photography," Jim Morris (pictured above far right) at the opening reception of the exhibit"
The exhibit began its display in February 2012 and still is up today for you and your family to enjoy. Library hours are between 9am and 9pm Monday thru Thursday, 9am to 5pm on Friday and Saturday and 1pm to 5pm on Sunday. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
