Have you ever wondered how a child views the town they live in? A new exhibit in the St. Johns County Rotunda Gallery will present a unique look of Lincolnville as seen by its younger residents.
The opening reception for A Day in the Life of Lincolnville Through the Eyes of Children will take place on Tuesday, August 3, 2010 at 8:00a.m. before the St. Johns County Board of Commissions meeting in the County Administration building located at 500 San Sebastian View.
The exhibit will feature 20 photographs and 7 paintings portraying the Lincolnville neighborhood. The participating artists range in age from 11 to16 years old. Local photographer, Justin Itnyre gave direction to the young photographers and local art instructor, Corrie Borglund, helped as well. The childrens’ photographs will be published in a book later this year.
A Day in the Life of Lincolnville Through the Eyes of Children will be on exhibit through October. It is the first all student art exhibit to hang in the Rotunda.
