"Hidden in Plain View: A Touring Photo Exhibit" is organized by MELSA (Metropolitan Library Service Agency) and supported by Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

The exhibit is free and stopping at more metro-area libraries November 2013-June 2014. For the tour schedule, see www.melsa.org.
