"The Resilient Souls Project" will run on the WWU campus for two weeks beginning Friday at the Mildred Cox Gallery. Admission is free.
It is a traveling exhibition encouraging inner strength through portraits and writing. The exhibit is a two-decade follow up to photographer Cathy Lander-Goldberg's "Resilient Souls: Young Women's Portraits and Words."
