Gage Gallery at Roosevelt University (roosevelt.edu/gagegallery) presents Violent Realities, a photography exhibition by Jon Lowenstein and Carlos Javier Ortiz. The artists in this exhibition focus on the victims of violence to raise awareness about how it affects the children, families, neighborhoods and communities in Guatamala and The United States. Violent Realities is on display until January 15, 2010. This video was produced by Chicago Access Network Television (cantv.org) and was made possible in part with support from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
