THE U.VA. STUDENTS IN NEW ORLEANS for an interdisciplinary January Term class spent another day gutting flood-ravaged homes and answering questions about college life from high school students. Driving through the city, they saw firsthand the divide between Bourbon Street – cleaned up and preparing for Mardi Gras – and the larger areas of the city still without power and only beginning to sort through the debris. The students are often told their work is only a drop in the bucket, but as one is quick to point out, “the bucket down here needs a lot of drops.” Read their latest dispatches in the New Orleans Journals.

On Saturday, the University of Virginia Art Museum returns from its holiday break with the opening of “The Social Lens,” an exhibit of photographs that touch on a range of social issues. These works are drawn from the collection of Ray Graham III and reflect his interest in documentary or social commentary photography – photography that provides a sense of place, social situation or events that can change the viewer’s perceptions and values. The 10 artists whose work is included capture the intricacies of life in such far-flung places as Native American reservations and the sidewalk in front of the White House. Full Story.
