The Audacity of Hope

Juried by Paula Tognarelli, Executive Director of the Griffin Museum of Photography

“We hang on to our values, even if they seem at times tarnished and worn; even if, as a nation and in our own lives, we have betrayed them more often that we care to remember. What else is there to guide us? Those values are our inheritance, what makes us who we are as a people” - Barack Obama.

Artists were invited to submit thematic work which celebrates the tenacity of the human spirit and perseverance in the face of adversity.
