How We Play

4/20/19 - 8/11/2019

Main Library

Jewett Gallery - Lower Level

100 Larkin St.

This exhibit of engaging photos by Jarrel Phillips shows how play takes shape in our lives. Through photography and personal and cultural experiences of children, adults, artists and circus performers, How We Play explores the existence and significance of play beyond childhood to adulthood.

Play is all around us. It is a lifestyle. How we play is how we live. Photos explore different games as well as the circus, music and capoeira – an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics, and music.
