The WKU School of Media Gallery is preparing for an exhibit focused on the December tornados that impacted Bowling Green and the state of Kentucky at large. Anyone who documented the event is welcome to submit their images.

According to the announcement email, the gallery will run from March 21 to April 22, but the deadline to submit photos is Feb. 28.
