Children's 'Beloved Community' Images On Display

The images made by students at Whittier Elementary School, Glendale Middle School and Innovations High School, as part of the Beloved Community Photography Exhibit, are now on display through March 2 at the George S. & Dolores Dore Eccles Art Gallery in the Center for Arts & Media on Salt Lake City's South City Campus, 1575 South State Street, Salt Lake City. Below are a few highlights from a reception for the students to kick of the exhibit, which is free and open to the public.

Martin Luther King Jr. popularized the phrase "beloved community" to represent his vision for societies that embrace cooperation, unity and connection. To honor and apply this bold idea, the SLCC School of Arts, Communication & Media created a program to encourage art by local students that showcases their own cherished neighborhoods. The Beloved Community Photography Project provides photography equipment and instruction by SLCC faculty members to students. After participating in classroom activities that explore King's legacy and training in photography techniques, students took photos that highlighted their beloved connections with their own communities.
