Over 500 women on the Monterey Peninsula are without adequate shelter. These women have powerful voices and a unique vision that often goes unnoticed and ignored. The Museum has partnered with the Fund for Homeless Women to provide cameras to these unsheltered women, so that they may capture the world they see. This Community Gallery exhibition features photographs taken by 11 of Monterey’s unsheltered women. What Museum members and visitors will see through these women’s photographs, are images of optimism, faith, and reality. Along with these photographs, this exhibition presents poignant testimonials from the artists along with reflective and interactive activities for all visitors.

This Community Gallery exhibition is a collaboration between the Monterey Museum of Art, Fund for Homeless Women, guests of Gathering for Women, and freelance curator Deborah Silguero working with students from the CSUMB Visual and Public Arts Museum Studies class.
