Opening Reception for “Humans of New Rochelle” at the Rotunda Gallery

An opening reception will be held for the exhibit “Humans of New Rochelle” at the NRCA Rotunda Gallery on Wednesday, July 17th at 5:30 pm. The exhibit was created by recent New Rochelle High School graduates Ann Gombiner and Veronica Yu, who will both be heading to Harvard University this fall. For the last three years the duo have produced the “Humans of New Rochelle” Instagram (@humansofnewro), examining and celebrating the city’s diversity through a journalistic lens pioneered by the popular (20 million followers) “Humans of New York” site, and they are turning their posts in to an exhibit that will run at the NRCA Rotunda Gallery from July 16 through August.

The exhibit will draw on their “Humans of New Rochelle” archive and feature photographs of about a dozen subjects interviewed by Gombiner and Yu; each photograph will be accompanied with an excerpt of the HONR interview (the full text will be available via a QR code.) In addition the public will be invited to submit their own stories on notecards when they visit the exhibit.
