On Wednesday we went to the opening of our teammate Talitha’s phography exhibit, Velvet 17. Next week is a big anniversary for the Czech Republic, so she and seven other artists explored “the shedding of Communism for a new way of life, how Czech society has adapted to that change, the prevailing existence of xenophobia, and the evolution of the social mindset in the past 21 years.”
The pictures, and the stories behind them, were fascinating. It’s sobering to think that such a controlling & suffocating regime was such a stronghold just a short time ago; every time I learn more about Communism, I’m able to understand the people of the Czech Republic a little better.

A group that preformed at the exhibit. Wonderful stuff.

Our friend, Petra. She was the subject of one of the photos, as was her (precious!!!) grandmother, seen here.

Talitha had some great friends turn out for the opening. Pavla (fifth from the left) was also the subject of a photo (by her head).

Congrats, T! We’re so very proud of you!
