Inside the downtown Chattanooga Public Library, you’ll find on the first floor an exhibit of words and images that shares the stories of the homeless community in this city.

Robin Howe is a local artist who connected with - and compiled the stories from - that community, and the exhibit is titled “Voices + Visions: Chattanooga’s Homeless.”

I spoke with Robin - and librarian Thomas Anderson.

The exhibit “Voices + Visions: Chattanooga’s Homeless” will remain at the downtown Library until the end of this month, then the display will travel to the Eastgate and Northgate branches.

More information at the Chattanooga Public Library’s website: chattlibrary.org.
