ICP at THE POINT: Picturing Sorrow and Joy is an exhibition of photographs by students from the International Center of Photography’s partnership with THE POINT CDC. Based in the South Bronx and launched in 1997, the program is a year-round collaboration that teaches analog and digital photography, critical thinking, writing, and public speaking with the goal of fostering self-esteem, community development, and social change. The program includes weekly after-school classes for preteens, teens, and young adults, which take place in both a physical and virtual classroom/studio/darkroom as well as a gallery space. This exhibition celebrates local voices picturing the sorrows and joys of daily life as we heal and transform in community with one another.
ICP at THE POINT is made possible with generous support from The Richard Avedon Foundation, Keith Haring Foundation, William Talbott Hillman Foundation, Phillip and Edith Leonian Foundation, Bender-Fishbein Foundation, and the Surdna Foundation.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
