United Way of St. Johns County is pleased to partner with the St. Johns Cultural Council for an inspirational exhibit of photographs showcasing the work of nearly 30 non-profit organizations serving residents in St. Johns County. The dramatic images graphically depict a range of services from disaster relief to the smiling faces of children at play. This exhibit will run from August 2- October 20, in the Rotunda Gallery in the St. Johns County Administration Building located at 500 San Sebastian View.
“The face of our community is the common thread throughout this exhibit,” said Melissa Nelson, UWSJC executive director. “We see our neighbors, our friends, our families and our co-workers, and we see how focusing on the building blocks that lead to a good quality of life – Education, Health and Income – brings us together because we all gain when children are successful in school, when families are financially stable and when people are healthy. This exhibit truly demonstrates that commitment in our community. “
The St. Johns Cultural Council will host an opening reception for this exhibit on Tuesday, August 2, from 8:00-9:00am, just before the Board of County Commissioner’s meeting. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend. The St. Johns County Administration Building is open to the public from 8am until 5pm, Monday through Friday. The Cultural Council and United Way of St. Johns County would like to thank the St. Johns County Board of Commissioners for their continued support of this Art in Public Places project.
