The Idaho State University John B. Davis Gallery will feature a new photography exhibition of child labor workers in Nepal opening Sept. 3 titled “The Face of Hope.”

The photos were taken by Dr. Fahim Rahim, from the Idaho Kidney Institute, and show Nepalese children working in poverty to build bricks to help support their families instead of attending school.

“The exhibit is good at opening eyes to injustice going on in the world,” said Ryan Babcock, the director of the Davis Gallery. “As individual people, we can do something about it.”

The exhibit will be on display Sept. 3–19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public. The Davis Gallery is located in the lower level of the ISU Fine Arts Building.

There will be a grand opening for the exhibit on Sept. 2 at 6 p.m. in the Goranson Hall, located in the lower level of the ISU Fine Arts Building. After the grand opening, the exhibit will be open from 7 to 9 p.m. where food and beverage will be served.
