The Foundation has launched a creative self portraiture photography project at Wilmette Junior High School. The idea behind the photography project is to engage students creatively and thoughtfully. Using photography as a voice, allowing them to express their ideas, passions, and even fears. In an age where kids are constantly being compared to one another, this exhibit will show how diverse they all are…and why that is a beautiful thing. Students may learn something new about a peer or they may learn something about a stranger. Most importantly, the goal is for them to have fun with this project.
The installation of all of the photos will be hung throughout the WJHS halls in the art wing.
An art show is open to the community on June 4th, 3:15-5PM.
The D39 Educational Foundation sponsors complimentary cultural arts events for the community through the Sam Mikaelian Fine Arts Fund (SAM Fund). This special endowment was created in 1998 in honor of the retiring Wilmette superintendent’s 31 years of exceptional service to the District.
