Light Work’s Legacy

Light Work, an artist-run, nonprofit organization in Syracuse, New York, celebrates it’s 40th Anniversary with the exhibition “40 Artists / 40 Years: Selections from the Light Work Collection.” The exhibition features the work of Carrie Mae Weems, Cindy Sherman, John Gossage, James Casebere, Jim Goldberg, Dawoud Bey, Fazal Sheikh and Hank Willis Thomas, to name a few. Light Work Executive Director Jeffrey Hoone said in a statement, “The forty pictures in this exhibition represent each year that Light Work has been supporting artists from 1973 to 2013. They stand in for the hundreds of other artists who have participated in our artist-in-residence, exhibition, publishing, and grant programs and stand out as the reason we do what we do.” The exhibition opens today, August 19, and runs through October 25, 2013, with a reception on September 25, from 5 to 7 pm.
