Celebrating Heroism


Are you in need of some good news? Everyday heroes walk among us in the communities of Charlotte – in our workplace, our neighborhoods, local coffee houses, soccer fields or bus stops. These people make our city a better place by sacrificing personal incentive to improve their communities.

Silent Images invites the city of Charlotte to pick up their cameras and share the good news of a quiet hero in their community. This photographic celebration will be presented as a gallery at the Levine Museum of the New South from July until December of 2012.

To participate in this project, photograph your local hero. Each photograph submitted will be featured in the gallery as a part of our Hero Collage, recognizing both hero and photographer. In addition, every hero is invited to the reception for the gallery’s opening. Let’s celebrate our heroes!
