Poverty-Themed Photo Exhibit At Nave Museum
The upcoming photography exhibit at the Nave Museum tells the story of homelessness in Houston.
As a photojournalist, Ben Tecumseh DeSoto was assigned to do a story on the homeless in the 1980s, but his curiosity wouldn't allow him to be satisfied with one-time coverage. He was too intrigued by the plight of those he met on Houston streets. "All I was doing was my job and the story unfolded," he told the Victoria Advocate.
DeSoto will show the humanity to homelessness in his award-winning photo exhibit, Understanding Poverty, at the Nave Museum. He is scheduled to be in Victoria during the free opening night reception from 6-9 p.m. Thursday.
Admission of $2 will be charged from noon to 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday only.
The exhibit will be displayed from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday and noon to 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday at the Nave Museum, 306 W. Commercial St., Victoria. Admission is $2 for adults, $1 for children/students/military/ seniors, and free for members. The opening night reception Thursday is free.
