Glendale teen photography exhibit is now online!

For 10 weeks last summer, a group of teens at Glendale Public Library, armed with digital cameras, documented the little-noticed and often-overlooked in Glendale as part of a grant-funded statewide humanities project created by the California Council for the Humanities.

Now you can see the results of the teens' explorations in an online exhibit at The exhibit is the culmination of "How I See It: My Place," a project involving 21 libraries and over 200 teens statewide. The goal was to get young people to know the places where they live; to give them new skills in photography, writing, and critical thinking; and to spark their interest in the humanities.

The exhibit features over 300 photographs as well as descriptive material about the photos written by the teens themselves, along with other information about the program. Let us know what you think of our local teens' hard work!
