Images of Hospice in Lakewood

When: Mon., Dec. 20 2010

Dignity in the face of death is a gift worth celebrating. That's the thinking behind Images of Hospice, a surprisingly uplifting photo installation now on view at the Lakewood Public Library's second floor. Notre Dame College students Aurelia Nuber, Ralph D'Alessio, Sarah Nank, and Dominic Schiavoni worked for four months to compile an extensive collection of photos of patients and family members at Hospice of the Western Reserve. According to Beth Schindler, communications specialist for the agency, it was a life-affirming experience. "Through the camera lens, the students learned that even when facing a serious illness, there is life to be lived." The exhibit will be on display through January 26, during regular library hours. The Lakewood Public Library is at 15425 Detroit Ave. in Lakewood. For information, visit lkwdpl.org or call 216-226-8275. — Lamparyk
