There is still time to visit our project’s Photo Walk exhibit showcasing images captured during this summer’s South Side Photo Walk. Thirty images will remain on display through October at The Link Gallery at the Nancy Cantor Warehouse, 350 W. Fayette St. Grant funds received this year also allowed for several images to be on permanent display throughout the South Side neighborhood.

Now that the grant period has concluded, we are seeking sponsors to help display more photos throughout the city. If your business, nonprofit group or center would like to cover the cost to print and hang a photo, contact The Stand’s Director Ashley Kang at (315) 882-1054 or email
