MORRISTOWN, NJ - On September 28th, five Morristown-Beard School students attended a special program at 70 South Gallery in Morristown in conjunction with the National Peace Corps Association.
The gallery’s current exhibit, Spirit, features more than 120 photographic works of Peace Corps volunteers from around the world. It showcases the interactions these volunteers had the locals in their respective communities, and provides the viewer with a window into their lives.
Through the gallery’s “Peace Corps Discovery Day,” Morristown-Beard School students Leila Curtiss ’17, Zoe Grebin ’18, Emily Kitchin ’18, Jaime Sheppard ’17, and George Warnock ’18 were able to learn about the iconic organization and the opportunities that exist for students in global volunteering.
They participated in a series of activities at the gallery, and are currently engaged in a project in which they use their choice of media (photography, painting, drawing, digital creation, etc.) to illustrate the theme of Spirit in their everyday life.
Morristown-Beard School’s involvement in the project was coordinated through Upper School visual arts teacher Laurie Hartman.
