LearningWorks, a Portland agency that helps children and families who need assistance succeed in school and life, celebrates its 50th anniversary with a one-night photography exhibition from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 15, at the U.S. Custom House, 312 Fore St., Portland.
The photographs are from LearningWorks’ “50 Stories Project,” which profiles 50 people in the community whose lives have improved because of LearningWorks. The agency worked with a half-dozen photographers to profile the people and tell their stories.
Among the photographers whose work is featured are Smith Galtney, Molly Haley, Greg Rec, Sofia Aldinio, Cheryl Greaney, Angie Devenney and Claire Houston. U.S. Sen. Angus King will speak at the event.
The exhibition is part of a fundraiser for LearningWorks; tickets cost $50. To see an online gallery of the images, visit learningworks50th.org. To purchase tickets, call 207-517-3125 or visit picatic.com/learningworks50th.
