About 50 community volunteers gathered at the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office to be sworn into their neighborhood’s Youth Aid Panel (YAP) yesterday. YAP is a Juvenile Diversion Program that gives first-time juvenile criminal offenders the option of appearing before a panel of community volunteers, rather than entering the juvenile court system. These new graduates will help juveniles complete their contractual obligations to avoid the adverse effects of a criminal record.

The exhibit is exhibit co-hosted by @davinciartalliance to celebrate the anniversary of our film program's rebirth as @LightboxFilmCenter. From the perspective of traditionally static media (painting, printmaking, photography, and the like), the representation of movement has challenged artists throughout history. However, the birth of cinematography in the mid-19th Century marked a monumental turning point in how visual artists addressed movement in their work.
