12janAll Day25mayLook! Forward Photography Exhibition

Event Details

The Look! Forward Photography exhibit showcases the beauty and strength of children, teens and young adults who are living rich, full lives despite their disability or special healthcare need.

This year, thanks to the generosity of 39 South Carolina photographers, the exhibit featured 49 children, teens and adults. Family Connection developed the LOOK! project in response to often heard comments from the families we serve. “I wish that the world would really see my child and not just their disability!”

Family Connection has a long history of  serving families of children with disabilities and special healthcare needs. In 2015, we became the Parent Training and Information Center for South Carolina. There is a Center in every state to provide information and training to parents of those with disabilities, ages birth through 26.

Event Details

In November 1943, Marine 1st Lt. Alexander Bonnyman, Jr. was mortally wounded while leading a successful assault on a critical Japanese fortification on the Pacific atoll of Tarawa, and posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military honor. The brutal, bloody 76-hour battle would ultimately claim the lives of more than 1,100 Marines and 5,000 Japanese forces.  Author and journalist Clay Bonnyman Evans shares his journey to reclaim the lost remains of his grandfather in this free lecture. Afterwards, Evans will sell copies of his book, “Bones of My Grandfather: Reclaiming a Lost Hero of World War II.”
