From the Page, Through the Lens: Teen Services Student Art Exhibit

Public Opening Reception: 7-10PM, Saturday, May 17, 2014
Gallery Hours: 11-4PM, Wednesday-Saturday
Words Alive will present a student arts exhibit based on the American classic The Great Gatsby within its Teen Services Adolescent Book Group (ABG) program. The objective is to unify the Words Alive ABG sites within the Juvenile Community & Court Schools (JCCS) while enhancing the book reading experience and encouraging students to think critically between themes in books and their own environment.
Students completed a two-part photography workshop designed in collaboration with Words Alive partner, Project Love Out Loud and were tasked to take photos of their interpretation of core themes recognized in The Great Gatsby: conspicuous consumption, the American Dream and the pursuit of happiness. The photos will be selected and curated by the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) Assistant Curator Chantel Paul. Mesa College Museum Studies students will then design and mount the exhibit for an exhibition at East Village's Space 4 Art.
