February 2018 EXHIBIT

February 5 – 28, 2018

The Newburgh Free Library’s lobby will feature a photo exhibit curated by the members of the Boys and Girls Club College Prep Program.

The College Prep Program services students from the 9th through 12th grade, guiding the students through their transition from high school to college. Some of skills taught in the College Prep program are tutoring and SAT prep, how to apply for scholarships, internships and financial aid and the opportunity to tour many universities. The students also engage in community service projects throughout the Hudson Valley and learn the arts through music, dance and photography.

Through the volunteer service of Richard Rabinowitz of Digital Photography Academy Students were taught how to operate DSLR cameras through our weekly photography workshop. Although many of the students have never used cameras, their daily usage of their social media platforms like Snapchat and Instagram helped them to adapt to the cameras effortlessly.

The photos displayed were taken during our community service event held at the Food Bank of Hudson Valley and various locations in the City of Newburgh.

The exhibition will run through February 28 in the lobby of the Newburgh Free Library, 124 Grand St., Newburgh, NY 12550.

If you wish to view the art show and the gate is down, please see a security guard. The Newburgh Free Library is open from 9-9 Monday through Thursday; 9-5 Friday and Saturday; and 1-5 on Sunday.  For more information about library programs or upcoming art shows, please call (845) 563-3600.
