Picture This! A Children’s Photography Exhibit
Centro Nueva Creación and NEXUS/foundation for today’s art invite you to experience the inspiring photography of the acclaimed students of the Goodlands® Community Arts Program at Centro Nueva Creación, a community center in North Philadelphia. Picture This! offers the viewer a glimpse into the complex and beautiful realities of our neighborhood. The young photographers use their images as expressions of hope, peace, and perseverance.
The Goodlands® Community Arts Program is part of the community strategy by Centro Nueva Creación to counter the negative image of the West Kensington and Fairhill neighborhoods as “The Badlands.” Since the program’s inception in 2001, the photographs by these young artists have been exhibited in countless locations, including galleries, universities, community art festivals, and other public venues.
Come and experience one of our city’s greatest strengths – the youth and their vision for the future. The artists, ages 5-13, will be present from 6pm to 8pm to discuss their work with those in attendance. Join us to celebrate the work and the mission of the Goodlands® with those who make it all possible!
