Fall River Portraits – 2015

JUNE 1, 2015 - JULY 2, 2015

Reception: JUNE 6, 2015 at 1:00 PM



Photographs by students from B.M.C. Durfee High School, Resiliency Preparatory School, UMass Dartmouth, and Senior Champion volunteers with the Healthy Cities Initiative document the people, culture, and neighborhoods of Fall River. A sequel to last year’s well-received Fall River Portraits show, this exhibit explores new aspects of city life. Themes include life at the city’s fire stations, neighborhoods and beloved small businesses in the Flint and South End, highlights from the last Senior Sweetheart pageant, activities and camaraderie at the city’s Senior Centers, and Fall River’s residents’ enjoyment of movement in its many forms. The project is made possible by a grant from the UMass President’s Office. An opening reception to be held on June 6th 1:00 ‘ 3:30. Entertainment by the Jambalaya band 2:45 – 3:30. The reception is open to the public and everyone is encouraged to come and celebrate together. Photograph by Kathy Duclos, Senior Champion.
