One in Three: Let’s Solve our Dropout Crisis, is a powerful art exhibition and community mobilization effort to unite the city of Jacksonville and to create a common vision for our schools.  The exhibition lifts the faces and stories of 20 current and former Duval County Public School students through dramatic portraits by photographer Ingrid Damiani.  Their stories demonstrate the power of an engaged community that works ONE by ONE to ensure that all students are successful in school. They show the need for every person in our city to get involved in public education. The ONE by ONE campaign will bring our community together face to face, voice by voice and ONE by ONE to find solutions for our children.

The exhibition is currently on view at the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens until January 9, 2012.  The exhibition then hits the road and travels to areas all over Duval County to bring this exhibition and campaign to your neighborhood.  The exhibition will be divided into two compelling “mini” exhibitions so that two venues each month can share the stories of these remarkable students.
