The Art of the Un-Selfie

“Taking these photos gave me a perspective on how great our community is. I hope other people will slow down and look at all the great things in Jacksonville”, remarked Luke Grable. Grable was reflecting on his experience after participating in The Art of the Un-Selfie. A portrayal of Jacksonville, Illinois through the eyes of local teenagers. He is one of six students who participated in the project designed by Midwest Youth Services and in partnership with The Dream Center Foundation. ‘I found this to be a fun project and it gave me the chance to see things that I would normally overlook’, said Grable.

The collection of 20 photos is on display at LLCC-Jacksonville on the north side of the downtown square and will move to the Dream Center located at 210 West College.
