Yesterday Alix Smith '00 premiered a solo exhibit titled "States of the Union" at the Morgan Lehman gallery in New York City. Inspired by the current controversy surrounding the issue of gay marriage, her photographs aim to portray homosexual couples as no different from other couples. The show features gay and lesbian couples in traditional familial poses that convey a sense of normalcy. The goal of the exhibition is to show that the word "family" can have multiple definitions. "States of the Union" will be on view until October 10.
