Street exhibit: ‘Faces of a Neighborhood’

alterman1Local photographer Jack Alterman has transformed a stretch of Columbus Street into an homage to the people who live nearby.

East Siders Matter: Face of a Neighborhood in Transition features dozens of large black and white portraits of neighborhood individuals. Young and old, black and white, new and long-time residents are featured in the portraits that adorn the chain link fence a block off of East Bay Street.

Every picture tells a story, and Alterman remembers each and every one. Take, for example, Henry:

Swing by Columbus Street and check out the pictures while you can. And if you see Jack Alterman there, ask him to tell you a story behind one of the pictures. You won’t be disappointed.

Because Arts Matter.
