Photography exhibition to spotlight local nonprofits


The work and programs of nearly 30 local nonprofits will be spotlighted in a new photography exhibition.

Presented by United Way of St. Johns County and the St. Johns Cultural Council, the exhibit will showcase visually a range of nonprofit services, from disaster relief to the smiling faces of children at play. The exhibition is slated to run Aug. 2- Oct. 20 in the Rotunda Gallery in the St. Johns County Administration Building, located at 500 San Sebastian View in St. Augustine. The building is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The cultural council will host a free, public opening reception for the exhibit Tuesday, Aug. 2 from 8 to 9 a.m. prior to the Board of County Commissioners’ meeting.

“The face of our community is the common thread throughout this exhibit,” United Way SJC Executive Director Melissa Nelson said. “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.”
