CityArts for Youth Photo Display Features Work of PC Students in Providence, Ecuador

 

 

Providence, R.I. — The photography of Providence College students who studied the theme “Visualizing Peace and Justice” in Providence and in Ecuador is on display in the gallery at CityArts for Youth, 891 Broad St., Providence, through Friday, April 20.
The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. A closing reception will be held on Thursday, April 19, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., with a speaking program at 6:30 p.m. Among the speakers will be Barbara Wong, executive director for CityArts, and Matthew W. Gendron ’12 (Lowell, Mass.), a PC student. 
The “Visualizing Peace and Justice” exhibit is the result of two courses offered this semester — Global Community Lens, taught by Dr. Nicholas V. Longo ’96, associate professor of public and community service studies and director of the Global Studies Program, and Eric E. Sung, assistant professor of photography, and Peace and Justice, taught by Dr. Jeffrey D. Pugh, assistant professor of political science.
The courses included two service-learning projects. In February, students taught photography to children and took photos at CityArts, a nonprofit organization that provides free art education to children ages 8-14.
In March, the PC students traveled on an Alternative Spring Break trip to Quito, Ecuador, where they worked with a nonprofit founded by Pugh, the Center for Mediation, Peace and the Resolution of Conflict (CEMPROC).
The goal was to use photography to share ideas, experiences, and stories about peace and justice with the local community. Photographs on display will include works taken in Providence and in Quito, Pijal, and Otavalo, Ecuador.
“We really hope that the Providence community will come to our photography exhibit and see the end product of our trip to Ecuador and our volunteer work with local youth,” said Alex Finn-Atkins ’12 (Springfield, Mass.). “It has been a rewarding experience to take different points of view on peace and justice and unite them as one exhibit."
