This exhibit features works by Stacey Irvin, the winner of the 1999 Margaret Stonewall Wooldridge Hamblet Award. The Hamblet Award winner is selected by a panel of outside jurors from an open invitational for graduating seniors held each spring. The award, a $16,000 grant to be used for travel and study during the year following graduation, culminates in this exhibition. Traveling through western China and along the Friendship Highway between Kathmandu and Lhasa, Irvin visited many areas that she considers blind spots of the West. This exhibition is her photographic record of the peoples she encountered.
