Sanctuary Decade Exhibit 2016
by Brenda Ann Kenneally, a NATURE Lab Internship, with support from NEA, Sept. 30- Dec. 17, 2016.
An intimate look at a Canadian Indigenous community daring to challenge a powerful adversary, Water Warriors is a documentary exhibition by award winning photojournalists Andrew Stern and Michael Premo. Water Warriors is a transmedia photography and film-based installation chronicling the heroic efforts of
one community’s resistance against the lucrative oil and natural gas boom sweeping North America. In 2013,
when a Texas energy company began searching for natural gas in rural New Brunswick, Canada, a group of
unlikely warriors united to drive out the company in an ongoing campaign to protect their land and water.
Here’s the final entries for the mural for the front of the Sanctuary, which will be painted this year!

Facing Change: Documenting America is a nonprofit collective of writers and photojournalists dedicated to covering the vast array of challenges facing Americans. Founded in 2009 by Pulitzer Prize-winning photographers Lucian Perkins, formerly a photographer for the Washington Post, and Anthony Suau, formerly a contract photographer for Time magazine, FCDA aims to pay tribute to and continue the work started by the Depression-era photojournalists. FCDA has just announced a partnership with the Library of Congress to archive and publish these new photographs and narratives.
Media Nodes visually articulates the transforming activities and environments of our news media. At a time when hard-core, investigative journalism is in peril, Media Nodes reveals a view behind the curtain, beyond the front page, to the interior landscape of an industry in transition.
Award-winning photographer Sean Hemmerle, in collaboration with the Columbia Journalism Review, took his camera into different newsrooms around the country. ““People throw around this word all the time, mostly disparagingly: ‘oh, the media,’ and ‘media spin,'” he says. “That made me think: who is the media? And what about the media? I wanted to put a face on these media nodes, the places where news is ‘made’ if you will.”
