In a New Light features photography by the youth of Northwest Passage, a residential mental health treatment program with campuses in Frederic and Webster, WI.

This innovative therapeutic arts program equips youth who are experiencing severe behavioral, trauma, and mental health issues with cameras, and sometimes snorkels, allowing them to find the beauty in the world that surrounds them. It’s about young people doing nature photography, but also about revealing the tremendous beauty and potential in themselves. These photographs are the visual representation of their journey of self-discovery, hope and healing.

In a New Light will be ON VIEW in the ArtReach St. Croix Mobile Art Gallery:
