The students of Linden Charter Academy are too young to vote, but they do have voices. They have their own perspectives on their reality.
During the 2016 winter semester, GVSU graduate student Stephanie Smedley worked with middle school students in Flint, Michigan, to document the experience of the city’s ongoing contaminated water supply disaster through art. The end product is a bold and telling artistic statement direct from the health and environmental battlefront in Flint, from those impacted the most.
This exhibit will be on view untill November 3. Free and open to the public.
