After leaving an impression, it became time for the The Women We Are exhibit to say goodbye to Lansing, but maybe not the surrounding areas. The thought-provoking exhibit that was temporarily located at the AA Creative Corridor on 1133 S. Washington St., came to an end on Thursday, March 5. Documentary photographer Amanda Grieshop said the closing week of her nude thought-provoking exhibit filled her with a range of emotions, from pride to frustration and disappointment to happiness and exhaustion. Not to mention a big crowd to end the week off with. “A large handful of community members came to see the show in the last few days it was up and that felt great,” the photographer said.
