"Picture Imperfect: Photography of the Work x Family Equation"
Jane Gottesman, founding director, Working Assumptions

Tue, Nov 7, 5 pm
Forum, McCarthy Center

Framingham State University, Framingham, Massachusetts

What is hiding in plain sight behind our vision of the American family? What do we see, and what is hidden? Attend the opening talk by Jane Gottesman, who started the foundation behind Showing (work x family). Building on Game Face: What Does a Female Athlete Look Like?, the noted exhibition and book she developed, Gottesman suggests that looking at unspoken assumptions about work and family can create opportunities for connection and strength. The Showing exhibition is a meditation on current-day America unlike you've ever seen, opening up paths to engagement, dialogue, and action around work and family issues at a time when the reality doesn't match with the accepted story.

A special event shuttle will run between FSU's Maple Street parking lot and the McCarthy Center for the 4:30 pm reception and the 5 pm opening talk.
