Opening July 18 through Oct. 25 at Crealdé's Hannibal Square Heritage Center. The latest Crealdé School of Art Documentary Project was a collaboration with the Winter Park History Museum. As a reflection of contemporary culture, a cross section of Winter Park busineses was selected to create a valuable historic record for the future. Twelve advanced Crealdé students, under the direction of professional documentary photographers Peter Schreyer and Sherri Bunye, photographed 27 businesses, chosen for their historic architecture or long-term presence in the community. Join us for the opening reception from 7-9 p.m. Friday, July 18, at the Hannibal Square Heritage Center.
