March 21 was an exciting day, the air was charged with energy and great enthusiasm. Hundreds of Newark’s school children would leave their classrooms, leading their classroom teachers, art teachers, and technology coordinators. History was being made. They would apply what they had learned in the classroom to an exciting project, “A Day in the Life of Newark.” Exhibited here is their discovery of their home, their city, through their eyes and words. These future Gordon Parks, Ansel Adams, and Diane Arbus’, demonstrate a creative zeal and budding aesthetic sense.
