Parks Gallery is doing their part with the exhibit “Sickle Cell Anemia: A Child’s Perspective Through Art,” which features watercolors by Camille Yvette Lawrence Floyd. A reception and presentation was held on September 17, 2011.

The Gordon A. Parks Gallery & Cultural Arts Center reflects the diverse interests of renowned photographer, filmmaker, and writer Gordon Parks. The Center serves both Campus and community through a variety of multicultural activities, including art exhibits, lectures, poetry readings, and musical events.

The exhibit is presented on the John Cardinal O’Connor Campus in the South Bronx from September 10, 2011 through November 23, 2011.
