The Photography and Literacy Project is an innovative program positioned under Syracuse University’s Coalition of Museums and Art Centers (CMAC) that brings SU students into Syracuse City Schools to develop projects involving photography, video, audio recording, and writing. The objective is to improve students’ writing and reading skills by linking these studies with photography, video, and poetry.

“If I can make one kid or any number of them feel they’re capable, intelligent, creative, and have something substantial to add to the conversation in class, then that’s rewarding to me,” says Stephen Mahan, Director of SU’s Photography and Literacy Project.

This exhibition features work by children selected from five groups that the PAL Project worked with over a nine week period: Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection, middle and high school students; North Side Leaning Center, middle and high school students; Edward Smith School, self-contained classroom, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students; Edward Smith School, 5th grade students; and Say Yes to Education.

Seen and Heard PAL Project is on view through August 6, 2017. The main Summer exhibition, Seen and Heard is on view through August 27, 2017.

All students with featured work received a FREE Household Membership to the Everson Museum of Art for a year.
