“The work on display was created during two programs sponsored by The Art Center’s At-Risk Program, during which the young women worked with a poet and a photographer to create photo montages and a book of poetry and photographs. The work is powerful, and gives one a glimpse of these young women’s lives and their struglle to change them.” — Cheryl French,
