A free public symposium. Eight internationally-recognized photographers and filmmakers were commissioned to create new work about the emotional and collaborative experience of working with hospices and hospice care. Each immersed themselves, over an extended period of time and in different cities, in the world of the people who know it best: patients, families and health care providers. "Hospice: a Photographic Inquiry" held March 31 - June 10, 2001.

In Memorium: The Photographic Work of Jonathan Stowers was exhibited at the George S. & Dolores Doré Eccles Art Gallery, South City Campus. "[Photography] was a true passion for [Stowers]. He showed his deepest emotions through his art," Kim Mazza, a friend of Stowers, said. "To understand his images was to understand him." Mazza, describes the content of his photographs as, "the wraps worn in his autobiographical images were a metaphor for protection. The interaction between his wrapped body and the landscape, expressed how isolated and misunderstood Jonathan felt." Terry Martin, the curator of the exhibit had these comments: "I hope this exhibit allows you to connect to Jonathan in your own way or to inspire you to go off on your own 'Photo safari' perhaps to explore your own personal journey." There is a scholarship foundation in Stowers' name.
