Kid's View: The Mill Creek Expedition

Installation View

Bela, Caldwell Park

September 4-November 7, 2009

Opening Reception September 4, 6-9 pm

Prairie collaborates with Happen, Inc. to create an opportunity for students ages 10-12 to learn about photography and make a meaningful impact on their environment at the same time. Participating students will explore ecologically sensitive portions of the Mill Creek to learn about the past, present and future of this historic urban waterway. They will document their travels with handmade pinhole cameras. The project will culminate in a book detailing the whole process.
