In one of the pieces hanging in a new student-curated art show in Smith Union, two middle-aged people lean over a cake and a diminutive white-haired woman, helping to blow out three numbered candles, 1-0-1.
In the accompanying text, photographer Samantha Hoegle ’17 explains that the man in the photo is her father, the woman her aunt, and the small woman her 101-year-old grandmother. “101 years of caring for others and 101 years of loving life,” she writes. “In my book, it doesn’t get much better than that.”
The show “This Is Love” will be in the Blue Gallery through April 16, and is the inspiration of Sam Halpert ’20. Read the story in Bowdoin News.
