We don’t usually feature art by men on the site, but the upcoming Matt Barnes photo exhibit is too important to miss.

MERCY by Matt Barnes opens tonight at Struck Contemporary from 6 to 11 PM. “Mercy” comes from the name of the hospital ship that serves some of the world’s most vulnerable populations. Barnes was able to capture their work in Madagascar as well as the people to whom they aim to bring health and dignity.
