Some people don’t like to face conflict, but the students at the Brooks Institute of Photography aren’t afraid to snap a few pictures of it. Saturday, April 8, the Conflict Solutions Center will present an awards exhibition and benefit titled Divided: Images of Conflict at the Contemporary Arts Forum from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The exhibition, which will award the best entries from the students, will also include cocktails, appetizers, and a silent auction, all for the price of a $20 donation. Advance tickets are available through the Conflict Solutions Center at or 963-6765.
