13 Jun Princeton Young Achievers Students Featured in Gallery Exhibition
We’re thrilled to show Princeton is My Home/Princeton es Mi Casa, an exhibition of work by our Princeton Young Achievers in our Lower Level Gallery. In collaboration with the YMCA’s Princeton Young Achievers, students from our Creative Friday class at the Pannell Center and our Wednesday class at Princeton Community Village’s Crimmins Center share their stories about their lives growing up in Princeton and their hopes for the future.
The exhibition is a reflection of the powerful forces that connect us all through living in the town we all call ‘Home’. Teaching artist, Veronica Olivares-Weber, worked with the students to create these three-dimensional papier mâché homes using recyclable materials, like cigar boxes, local newspapers, and cardboard. Each home represents a unique story of families living, working and striving to find their place within Princeton and their love for this community. This exhibition invites us to celebrate our diverse communities and reflect on the importance of unity, support and above all, a safe place to live.Come check it out!June 10-July 22, 2023 Opening Reception: Saturday, June 17 | 3-5pm
