In the true meaning of the holiday season, NYIT's Center for Global Health is sponsoring a benefit exhibit of African images as part of the photography show, "Community Collaborations: Africa, Costa Rica, and Peru." The opening reception for the benefit, which will raise funds for medical equipment/supplies for the Hawa Memorial Savious Hospital in Osiem, Ghana, is Tuesday, Dec. 11, 5-7 p.m. at NYIT Gallery 61, 16 W. 61st St., 11th floor, Manhattan campus. The framed and signed images of Africa are priced at $50 for an 8x10-inch size, $150 for an 11x14-inch size, and $300 for a 20x30-inch size.
The exhibit also features images from Costa Rica (School of Architecture and Design's design of a recycling and education center) and Peru (Office of Career Services' community outreach during Alternative Spring Break). After the opening reception, it will run until Jan. 31, 2013, and may be viewed Monday to Saturday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. For information about the Center for Global Health fundraiser, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 516.686.7647.
