Through Our Eyes: Midtown and Beyond

The multimedia work of student journalists from Melrose Elementary, John Hopkins Middle and Lakewood High schools

Slideshow from the event

Steeped in a tradition of 11 years, the Journeys in Journalism program’s annual showcase this year encompasses multimedia projects from all three of its journalism schools: Melrose Elementary, John Hopkins Middle and Lakewood High. The exhibit, Through Our Eyes: Midtown and Beyond, tells students’ stories of the people, places and things in their neighborhoods that have significant meaning to them. The work includes photography, writing and video reports. "This year, the students explored their environment in more personal ways," said Journeys in Journalism program coordinator Cynda Mort.
For the 7th year, The Studio@620 has sponsored this event by donating its gallery space.  Opening night (Oct. 19, 5-8 p.m.) will include student led tours of the work, music by the John Hopkins Jazz Band and welcome from community leaders. The traditional Taste of Midtown, featuring food from neighborhood restaurants, is Oct. 23, 5-8 p.m.

Exhibit hours are Tuesday - Saturday, 12-4 PM through Oct. 26.

Journeys in Journalism is a partnership between Pinellas County Schools and the Tampa Bay Times. The exhibit is sponsored by Eckerd College.
