Students have been interviewing people in the community and capturing the essence of their work through photographs. The students’ images will be featured on the Arts Commission’s new website, print materials, and in an exhibition at the Parkwood Gallery (housed in the Professional Building at 1838 Parkwood Ave.) The exhibition, “Toledo Vitality,” will run from April 14 through May 5. An opening reception will be held at the gallery 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 14.
