Through Feb. 3, 2013
12th SURA Student Exhibition
How do today’s young people view their families, friends and their neighborhoods? How do they deal with meeting different kinds of people? How can a camera help kids learn a new skill and see the community around them with a fresh perspective?
The Arab American National Museum’s SURA Arts Academy – a 2008 winner of the prestigious Coming Up Taller Award from the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities – helps local middle school students learn to interact with an increasingly diverse world. The free program offers the use of a digital camera, professional instruction, field trips and discussions conducted in a safe, welcoming environment, during academic-year and summer-camp sessions.

In the Lower Level Gallery through Feb. 3, 2013; free with Museum admission.
