Through The Eyes of a Child

Parkside Credit Union is proud to present Through the Eyes of a Child, a very special local school program with world-renowned photographer Monte Nagler.

Parkside Credit Union has teamed up with Westland Shopping Center and world- renowned photographer Monte Nagler to bring a very special learning experience to Livonia and Westland 3rd graders. Through this program both kids and adults alike will see that photos will truly speak a thousand words.

On March 29th and 30th 2012, Monte Nagler visited Grant and Hayes Elementary Schools in Livonia and Thomas Edison Elementary School in Westland. His purpose was to not only teach young children the art of photography, but to also inspire them.

Parkside Credit Union gave each student a disposable camera to take their own photos while keeping in mind everything that Mr. Nagler taught them. Then in two weeks, they will turn in their camera. Mr. Nagler will develop their film, and choose one photo that he thinks is the best from each child’s camera roll. Each of Monte’s chosen photos will be framed and on display at Westland Shopping Center in the near future on a yet to be determined date. Check back to our website for the official date and time.

Parkside Credit Union will also use these photos in a calendar for 2013, which will be free to all PCU members.

This event has received some publicity. Read the write up from the Detroit News here: Detroit News

Everyone is welcome to the ribbon cutting ceremony at Westland Shopping Center on a To Be Determined date in the near future. The photos will be on display for 2-4 weeks.
