Reception for exhibition documenting family homelessness, April 4

Looking into Light, on view at City Hall through April 27, documents the experience of family homelessness in America.  The National Center on Family Homelessness and its Campaign to End Child Homelessness present this exhibition of 50 photos from its archive of more than 20,000 images.  Looking into Light also includes photos by local photographer Dan Lamont, whose images tell the stories of homeless families in suburban and rural areas in Washington state.  
A reception will be 4 to 6 p.m., Wednesday, April 4, in the City Hall lobby. Lamont will share stories and audio recordings of homeless families in Washington state. 
The exhibition is touring the United States through 2013 and is sponsored locally by Seattle University’s Project on Family Homelessness.
