Cummings Gallery at Mercyhurst University presents “COMING HOME: Reentry After Incarceration” Sept. 23 through Oct. 26. “COMING HOME” is a collaborative project featuring photography by Errol Daniels with essays by writer Katherine Russell. By documenting formerly incarcerated people as they return to society, this exhibit humanizes criminal justice statistics and portrays the challenges of post-incarceration life through word and photograph. Daniels will discuss his work and answer questions during a reception on Thursday, Sept. 26, from 7 to 9 p.m. Copies of Daniels’ book will be available for purchase at the reception, and in the campus bookstore for the duration of the exhibit. The exhibit is funded by the Rev. Sylvester Jaworski endowment, named after the Divine Word missionary and photographer who was memorialized in a gift by the late Audrey Hirt ‘49.

Cummings Gallery is open weekdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 3 p.m.; closed Sundays. The gallery will also be closed Oct.10-13 during Mercyhurst’s fall break.
