Guest and Graduate Photo Show!

The Lincoln Park Community Shelter is fortunate enough to have the support of many other organizations within the Lincoln Park area. One of those organizations is the Chicago Photography Center. The Chicago Photography Center (CPC) is a volunteer driven organization that holds classes that teach people a variety of photography skills. They also have an outreach program which LPCS has been lucky to be a part of. Twice a month, volunteers from CPC take guests out in Chicago and shares their expertise about getting the perfect photo. The photography class is a favorite among our guests with several of them continuing to participate even after they graduate from our program.

Several months ago, CPC decided to give our guests a once in a lifetime opportunity by helping them put on a gallery opening, where our guests are able to display the work they have produced while in the class. For the last three months, LPCS guests and graduates have been editing their photos, mounting them for display, and learning the ins and outs of a gallery opening. This Friday, July 25th, at 6:30pm the Chicago Photography Center will open the Satellite Show featuring their outreach efforts to LPCS and Deborah’s Place, a women’s shelter on north side of Chicago. The exhibit will be on display through the month of August. We encourage you to stop by the Center to see all the hard work and effort our guests have put into their work! The Chicago Photography Center is located at 3301 N. Lincoln Ave. If you have any questions email Suzanne Powers at
