Face It

A photo exhibition will challenge women to think about their insecurities and “Face It” at 6-9 p.m. Tuesday in the UC Storm Surge. SPARK and Girls 4 Good created and organized the photo project, which asked women to write an insecurity of theirs onto their bodies accompanied by a description,  and then juxtapose it with encouraging words from a friend or significant other. As part of the interactive exhibit, gallery guests will have a chance to write messages on post-it notes to these girls and place them around the photos.
