a collection of works created by the students of the 21st CCLC City of Apalachicola Project Impact Afterschool Program

January 19th, 2016 – January 28th, 2016

The community is invited to the opening night reception of the exhibit 

January 23, 2015 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.             

Student docents Kamora Harris and Faline Everitt, from the program, will be available to discuss the various works of art.

The Apalachicola Center for History, Culture and Art presents Project Impact’s From Our Eyes, With Our Hands exhibit, comprising over 30 pottery masks and bowls created by students from ages 5 to 17 years of age. Kirby Gregory, pottery instructor, has worked with the students for the past 4 months to create the collection.  The display will also include models of over 20 downtown Apalachicola buildings created using recycled materials. Staff members D.T. Simmons, Stacey Johnson, Julie O’Malley and Katy Sparks have been leading the students in the creation of a whimsical child’s view of Apalachicola. The students have been incorporating their studies of found art into multiple projects and they will be discussing “recycle town” with the experts during a live videoconference with the Smithsonian Museum.

The City of Apalachicola supports two 21st CCLC after school programs through Project Impact.  They are located in Apalachicola at the City's Municipal Complex and the Apalachicola Bay Charter School.  After school services are provided free of charge and include homework help, targeted tutoring, educational enhancement, recreational activities, and field trips throughout the academic year with a full-time program in the summer weeks. The program is funded by a grant from the Florida Department of Education.
