Award-Winning Glendale Public Art Project To be Shown at GCC

A unique and creative photography exhibit at Glendale Community College will showcase the artwork of local teens from Nov. 5 to Dec. 5. The exhibit will be on display in GCC's Student Union, 6000 W. Olive Ave., in Glendale. "Picture Glendale" resulted from a collaboration between the city's Library and Art Program, the Parks and Recreation Community Center, and the Community Housing Division, which offered an art program to teens living in public housing. The program encouraged the youth to use photography as a means for self-expression. Their photos portray the young artists themselves, their lives and their communities. Leading the project and working with the teens was local professional photographer and public artist Rebecca Ross. Her work has been widely exhibited in Europe and U.S. and is represented in many public and private collections. Some of her photographs are also included in this exhibit. The opening reception will be held on Mon., Nov. 5, from 6-8 p.m. in the GCC Student Union's Palm Court. (Visit for a map of the campus). The exhibit will close on Wed., Dec. 5. The exhibit and parking are free. For more information, contact Elaine Adamczyk at 623.930.2180 or Gibran Villalobos at 623.930.3547.
