Connected: Beauty is… Reception & Exhibition
Dec 12 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Connected: Beauty is... Reception & Exhibition

Using the camera as a tool for creative expression, Stay Focused puts the student in control of the narrative, challenging them to view the spaces around them in new ways in order to share perspectives that are important to them. Founded and facilitated by photographer Shannon Woodloe, Stay Focused covers the history and core elements of photography, culminating in a theme-based photography project.

The project, “Beauty is…,” will be the students’ photographic responses to the marketing billboard for the Museum’s exhibition Posing Beauty in African American Culture, which poses the questions, “What is beauty?”

A reception and exhibit of student works will be held December 12, 2019 from 6 pm to 7:30 pm.

This Connected Series program is being offered in partnership with Serviam Girl’s Academy and Children and Families First’s Community Schools program at Bancroft Elementary School.
