Dozens of people showed up Thursday night for the opening of a special student-led photography exhibit featuring amazing shots of Dallas.
The reception at Polk-Wisdom Library honored the fifth-grade students from T.L. Marsalis Elementary School who took part “Our Community” project. Students were responsible for capturing an aspect of their community in a photo, and art teacher Jihan Mitchell had the photos professionally developed for the students at no cost. The best photos were selected for the exhibit.
“By photographing their community, the students get to see the beauty that is around them every day that they might otherwise not notice,” Mitchell said. “Then, this reception gives us the chance to honor these students and give them, their families and greater school community a way to celebrate their artwork and accomplishments.”
The photos will be on display at the Polk-Wisdom Library for the remainder of the school year.
