“Faces of Freedom” Photograph Exhibition
On display in both of our showrooms, Boston and Salem, MA
GoodWeave photograph exhibits at Landry & Arcari.
Come join us for this compelling exhibition of photographs produced by GoodWeave. The primary purpose of GoodWeave, a nonprofit organization, is to protect children from exploitative child labor practices in the Indian and Nepalese carpet industries and to offer these children greater educational opportunities.
The photos, taken by renowned photographer/filmmaker and human rights educator U. Roberto Romano, lead you behind the looms and into the world of carpet making. They will reveal to you the improvements in lives resulting from the GoodWeave programs.
Opening Reception – Thursday, May 6
