It’s officially called the Summer Literacy Clinic, but there’s much more to it than one-on-one reading and tutoring. True, when you enter the library of Roberts PreK-8 School in the Syracuse City School District (SCSD), you see third- and fourth-grade…
Syracuse’s South Side Newspaper–The Stand–to Celebrate 10 Years in Print
The Stand, Syracuse’s only community newspaper to cover the city’s South Side, will celebrate 10 years in print on March 8, 2020. To mark this milestone, a selection of images from the 10th annual South Side Photo Walk, held in July 2019, along with a collection of 10 images from the past decade—one for each year the paper has been in print—will be on display at The Link Gallery in the Nancy Cantor Warehouse, at 350 W. Fayette St. in downtown Syracuse.
The Stand’s 10th annual Photo Walk attracted the biggest and most diverse group of participants in the event’s history, including many neighborhood residents as well as visitors. A Photo Walk is a social photography event where photographers explore a neighborhood, shoot photos and practice their skills. Each summer, The Stand’s Photo Walk has become its most popular community event, bringing together photographers of all skill levels and ages and attracting participants from all sides of the city and beyond. The 2019 event welcomed Mayor Ben Walsh who read an official proclamation declaring July 27, 2019 as “Annual South Side Stand Photo Walk Day.”
The gallery show, “The Stand: 10 Years in Print,” will be on display for the month of March and coincide with The Stand’s March anniversary print issue. The exhibit will be up through March 31 at the Link Gallery. Gallery hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. A free, public reception for the show will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday, March 8.
The exhibit has graciously been sponsored by Syracuse University’s Office of Community Engagement with support from Bea González, vice president for community engagement and special assistant to the Chancellor. The Stand is a collaboration between the Newhouse School and members of the South Side community. The Stand’s vision is to one day be the media anchor for the community it serves.
The Link Gallery is accessible to wheelchair users from its West Fayette Street and West Washington Street entrances.
Street parking is available on both sides of the building with limited parking available in both the East and West Warehouse lots. For more information on groups with special needs or to arrange for parking, contact Kathy Pitt at email@example.com or 315.443.6144.
