“GENERATIONS” Photography Series No. 1 Visit the Dillard Center for the Arts Gallery to view the first in a series of Photography Projects based on the artist JR.
Dillard High School has an extensive history woven into the tapestry of the community. Families are the thread that make our tapestry beautiful. At Dillard High School, we have had the honor to educate and nurture generations of families. As the Dillard community grows, we grow. As we grow, our (family) community grows.
This photography project is to celebrate the history of “GENERATIONS” of Dillard High graduates. We have created 17 black and white photographic portraits of the 32 graduating members of the Douglas Adams’ family. The black and white portraits begin with one of the earliest graduating family members, Shirley Adams (1965), and end with Ezekiel Myrie (2023), a young future graduate of Dillard.
Steeped in tradition, Dillard High’s rich history and proud sense of ‘community as family’ is what gives true meaning to achieving the honor of “Dillard High Graduate”.
We are family, we are Dillard!
