The University Galleries in Florida Atlantic University’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters will collaborate with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County to present “ImageMakers,” their regional photography competition. The combined exhibition will open with a reception on Thursday, March 9 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., with the exhibit on display through Thursday, March 15, in the Ritter Art Gallery, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus. Both the exhibition and opening reception are free and open to the public.

“ImageMakers” will feature photography by children from the 13 Boys & Girls Clubs in Palm Beach County, the county’s largest not-for-profit youth development organization. These children, ages 6 to18, learn photography skills and take photographs during scheduled club field trips within the community. “ImageMakers” is part of the organization’s participation in a national photography competition and is coordinated by Dennis Young, director of computer education for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County.
