A message from Joan Oliva on the "Discovering Our New World" exhibit at Lake Worth's City Hall

Here is the information from Joan Oliva, the executive director of the Lake Worth CRA:
     Thanks to the Armory Art Annex of Lake Worth, the City of Lake Worth, the Palm Beach Photographic Center, the Guatemalan Mayan Center and the CRA/ LULA, the Exhibit “Discovering Our New World” will be displayed at Lake Worth City Hall until the end of January. This unique exhibit includes photographs taken by Lake Worth youth. These young residents, originally from Central America, took photos here in our beautiful City and each tells a story about their new home, their family and/or their new environment.
     If you did not get a chance to see this Exhibit while it was on display at the Armory Annex (LW Arts Center), please take a few moments sometime over the next month to see this meaningful and thoughtful exhibit.
     Thank you to the City Manager, Mike Bornstein, for the offer to display and to all our partners who made this possible.
     Staff at the CRA wish you and yours a Happy Holiday season. Thank you for your continued support.
     We look forward to working even harder this next year to bring you more exciting projects and programs!
You can read more about this exhibit when it was at the Armory Art Annex.

This would be a great opportunity for some in the news media to experience and report on, don't you think? The arts are such an important part of our City and is a tool to bring us all together as a community.
