Student Photography On Exhibit At Hamilton County Courthouse

Thursday, October 14, 2021
In collaboration with Dynamo Studios, ArtsBuild Opportunity Fellow Jules Jackson has coordinated an exhibit showcasing photographs made by two local high school students – Zaria Hanner, a sophomore at Tyner Academy, and Richard Mendez, a junior at The Howard School. The exhibit titled “Views from Chattanooga” includes photographs with sweeping views of urban and natural landscapes, as well as the quiet corners of the city, painting a warm and familiar portrait of Chattanooga. The exhibit is on view in the lobby of the Hamilton County Courthouse through January 2022. 

Also on display is a piece that abstract artist and live painter Andrew Travis created with the help of Hamilton County elementary school students at the Back to School Bash event in August.
After Mr. Travis planned the composition, students, parents and a police officer participated by adding their artistic expressions to the painting to take the work in new and unexpected directions. 

Mr. Jackson says, “Curating an exhibit was a wonderful experience. I learned through every step of the process, from planning the logistics of the exhibition to curating the work to the final installation. The two photographers featured in the exhibition have so much talent and drive for success, and I'm happy that we could give them a platform to advance in their artistic and career goals.”
