Sandy Alpert was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. She is an award-winning photographer and composer.

Her scores for musical theater productions have been produced off-Broadway.

Mary Beth Meehan [Visit artist's website]

Mary Beth Meehan is a Providence-based photographer whose current projects deal with immigration, culture, and community. Her goal is to create a connection with the people of those communities, whose identities are often obscured by economics, politics, or race.

Meehan’s work has been exhibited and published widely, including in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and the Washington Post, and has been honored by Pictures of the Year International and The National Conference for Community and Justice. Her weekly photo-and-text column in the Providence Journal was one of the first to attract national acclaim, and was nominated twice for the Pulitzer Prize.

Her photograph in ONWARD ‘11 comes from City of Champions, her long-term project that examines her changing, post-industrial hometown of Brockton, Massachusetts. The series has been exhibited and published as a work-in-progress, and will be mounted as a large-scale outdoor installation in the Fall of 2011.
