BUILD was a Huge Success!!!
The last weekend of January, students in our digital photography class exhibited their work at Pueblo Nuevo in the first offsite exhibition titled, Build!
|Featured Artists in the Build show are Students from ArtsChange’s Studio 205 After School Arts Program: Manuel Floriano, Xavier Polk, Phon Chanthanassk, Oliver Rodriguez, Ginea Jack, Tania Pulido, Roy Brown and Tim KimThis exhibition celebrates the work of eight youth photographers ages 15-21 as they pick up the camera for the first time. Working with their ArtsChange artist mentor Joseph Mintz these images were taken over the course of 12 weekly workshops. Their vision makes every effort to connect the mundane, the harsh and the ordinary to the beautiful struggle that is coming of age in Richmond.
