On display will be a collection of photographs spanning the days immediately following the school’s closing to two years later.
An excerpt of Hensley’s artist statement is as follows:
“I wanted to photograph for myself at VI after it closed as a way to preserve the memories and feelings that I had experienced during my 3 years there. Once I started photographing and exploring buildings that I had never been in before I realized how much history was there and how special VI had been to so many other people. Even though the doors are closed and the desks are removed, VI is far from empty.”
