Seen and Heard PAL Project

The Photography and Literacy Project is an innovative program positioned under Syracuse University’s Coalition of Museums and Art Centers (CMAC) that brings SU students into Syracuse City Schools to develop projects involving photography, video, audio recording, and writing. The objective is to improve students’ writing and reading skills by linking these studies with photography, video, and poetry.This exhibition features work by children selected from five groups that the PAL Project worked with over a nine week period: Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection, middle and high school students; North Side Leaning Center, middle and high school students; Edward Smith School, self-contained classroom, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students; Edward Smith School, 5th grade students; and Say Yes to Education.
