“Picturing Justice” (and more) on WABE with Lois Reitzes

Yesterday, ACP Board Member Mary Stanley spoke to Lois Reitzes at WABE about the exhibition "Picturing Justice," currently on view at Atlanta Legal Aid. The discussion also includes a chat with Ryan Vizzions about his incredible reportage at Standing Rock.

1:08: Lois Reitzes speaks with Mary Stanley, the owner of the Mary Stanley Studio and curator of “Picturing Justice,” an exhibit on view now, along with photographers Maura Friedman, Carlos Javier Ortiz and Elyse Blennerhassett;

17:16: Myke Johns speaks with director Rebeka Suellah and actors Rebeca Robles and Robert Bryan Davis about their production of “Blackbird,” which deals with the difficult story of a man and woman confronting their relationship when he was 40 and she was 12;

34:15: Reitzes speaks with photographer Ryan Vizzions about his work at Standing Rock. Some of his photos are on display in a group exhibit called “STAND: A Visual Dialogue on Justice.”"
(Transparency: Michael David Murphy, who created this post, has work included in "Picturing Justice.")

Please adjust your plans accordingly, and thanks!
