Since her son, Park, was born 19 years ago, Nancy Nolan has been documenting his life by photographing him in a pair of jeans — the same pair from infancy to now. She writes on her Park's Pants website that his birth was difficult for both him and her and that he spent a couple of months in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. She's grateful for his life, and now we're grateful that Wildwood Park for the Arts is providing a venue for the exhibition, "Park's Pants," which Nolan is doing in collaboration with photographer Dave Anderson.

The show opens Saturday, Oct. 10, and there are several related events: An opening reception at 6 p.m. Oct. 15; a panel discussion, “Community Conversation: Art as Therapy,” with Nolan, Anderson, Park Lanford, Ken Clark and others; and a "Tales from the South Tin Roof Project" event with Nolan Oct. 22. 

Wildwood is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday,10 a.m. to 5 pm. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
