A total of nine North Junior High students have their photography displayed in the Blank Canvas Arts Alley at the Commons on Mainstreet. The space is curated by Dominique Pierre-Toussaint, Hopkins Public Schools community engagement supervisor.
The students took meaningful and conceptual photographs of what they thought represented their community. One student said community was about the similarities people share in their daily lives, another one said music brings people together, and someone else thought community was anywhere that made you feel happy. The subject matter and meaning behind their photographs varied, but each one was personal to the artist.
Blank Canvas Arts Alley exhibits artwork created by Hopkins Public Schools students. The photographs were chosen in collaboration with Pierre-Toussaint and North Junior High art teacher Jackee Miller.
