ART | "Food: A Celebration of Diversity" 

Through March 20, Gallery r (100 College Avenue) is hosting an exhibition of vibrant photographs that showcase the food, culture, and community in Rochester's Marketview Heights neighborhood. Through RIT photojournalism student Audrey Horn's photographs of residents, their kitchens, and community gardens, "FOOD: A Celebration of Diversity" showcases how one community has pulled together in the face of urban food deserts.

The food-centered community initiative is a collaboration between the Marketview Heights Collective Action Project and RIT/University Community Partnerships. Dozens of images showcase community members planting and harvesting food in three community gardens, cooking and canning, embracing, and learning together. Also spotlighted is the Field to Table summer youth education program, in which kids learn where their food comes from and to appreciate the work that goes into growing it.

Gallery hours are Thursday through Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., and admission is free. For more information, call 256-3312 or visit
