It can be easy to lose sight of the good happening in the world. So MB Piland created "See the Good," a photo exhibit to shine a little light. Comprised of hundreds of submissions from clients and friends, it captures moments of good found all around us.
The exhibit was a pop-up show for the First Friday Art Walk on August 5 and open that evening only from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm. Hosted in the historic Westboro Mart, "See the Good" was a reminder that the world can be a wonderful place—we just need to open our eyes.
“Sometimes as a society, we lose focus and dwell on the negative,” said Martha Bartlett Piland, president and CEO of MB Piland Advertising + Marketing. “We want to redirect the conversation in a positive, creative way. So we invited 100 of our friends and clients to share their vision of good and help us curate this very unique exhibit.”
MB Piland encouraged participation by pledging a charitable donation for every camera that was returned for the "See the Good" exhibit. When the event concluded, school supplies delivered to the Topeka Rescue Mission’s Children’s Palace and Youth Center, a shining example of doing good in the Topeka community.
Celebrity judges Ralph Hipp, Sarah Carkhuff Fizell and the Reverend Barry Feaker selected the best of the photographs for special recognition. Enlargements of the judges selections were framed. The remainder of the photos were collaged in a floor to ceiling tribute to goodness.
Summer intern Moriyah Ramberg coordinated the "See the Good" project which she described as “a rewarding experience. I’ve developed so many valuable career skills through leading this event.”
