The Trahern Gallery, located on Austin Peay State University Campus, will be hosing a BFA show featuring “Third World America” from designer Stephanie Camfield.

Camfield’s Third World America features posters and photographs that examine concerns in the United States and raise awareness of some issues Americans currently face. The show will open on November 3 and will end with a closing reception from 5-8 p.m. on November 6 at Austin Peay 108 Trahern Gallery.

During her show, Camfield will be raising money by selling t-shirts for various charities. Camfield believes that everyone can make a difference, no matter how big or small.

“It isn’t just one person’s responsibility, its everyones civic duty to enact change,” she said. “Our world is a place of destruction and our country should be our top priority. This project is dedicated to shedding light on issues and solutions in America.”

Camfield traveled to Detroit for much of her inspiration and has additionally interviewed individuals that are mentally ill or homeless. She hopes her research will continue to grow as she travels to more areas to collect photographs and information regarding issues in America.

The Trahern Building is located on 8th Street, near the intersection of Jackson Alley. Parking is located behind the building, off Jackson Alley or in the 8th St. parking lot located across 8th St. from the Trahern building.
