The second annual gallery night hosted by the MCC Youth Development & Violence Free Zones programs focused on the theme of “light up the darkness.” Participating students displayed painting, photography and sculpture, and a number of students performed spoken word poetry or dance. The event took place at Kosciuszko Community Center, 2201 S. 7th St.
According to Daisy Del Aguila, a 15-year-old student at Veritas High School, students planned the event for months. “The project for me was about getting people together,” said Del Aguila.Did you like this story? Subscribe to NNS today.
