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.
|January 2012||Downtown||Main Library & Ritz Theatre and LaVilla Museum|
|February 2012||Northside||FSCJ North Gallery & Highlands Regional Library|
|March 2012||Beaches||Beaches History Center & Beaches Regional Library|
|April 2012||Southside||UNF & Pablo Creek Regional Library|
|May 2012||Arlington||University Park Library & Jacksonville Women’s Center|
|June 2012||Northwest||Bradham-Brooks Library & North Point Town Center|
|July 2012||Mandarin||Jewish Comm. Alliance & Hendricks Ave. Baptist Church|
|August 2012||Westside||Charles Webb Library & Kingdom Plaza Mall|
The exhibition is intended to start a dialogue. Through these venues there will be opening events, town hall meetings and various other programming activities based around the conversation that needs to take place about public education.
