Panama City, FL –
LYNN HAVEN, Fla. (WMBB) – The town of Lynn Haven celebrated Black History Month on Tuesday with an art exhibit. Students from surrounding elementary schools submitted works of art to be placed on the walls of the Lynn Haven Senior Activities Club.
Each piece reflects a notable part of black history. Some depicted the Harlem Renaissance while others were portraits of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
At the end of the day, a few pieces were selected by the city commissioners to win prizes.
“We probably had just over 100 people come in today and walked through the senior center to look at the art. I think children are our future and we need to encourage them in all areas of their lives, be it culture, sport, art or music, I think it’s so important, ”said Vickie Gainer, Director of the City of Lynn Haven.
It was the third year that the city held the celebration. Gainer says they hope to make the show bigger and better next year.
