Faces Pop Up on Endicott School Buildings
The images of dozens of people have been posted on a couple of buildings in the Union-Endicott School District.
The pictures were taken in conjunction with last Friday's announcement of a $2.5 million XQ Institute grant for the district's Tiger Ventures initiative.
The Inside Out Project set up a photo booth to allow those who've been involved in the alternative high school program recently launched by the district to have their pictures taken.
Black-and-white posters were printed after each person made a "strong face." The posters then were pasted onto the sides of Linnaeus West and Union-Endicott High School buildings.
The big images have generated community interest in recent days. District administrators say the hope is they'll prompt more conversations about future high school innovations.
The posters aren't permanent. They are printed on material that is designed to disintegrate after some rain. Normally, that might take a few weeks. But given the unusually wet weather the area has been experiencing, they might vanish sooner than expected.
