Lodge Events

"The Ones Among Us"

Exhibits will be on display May 17 - July 1, 2024 in the lobby.

"THE ONES AMONG US" art exhibition features portraits of 20 Westerville Central High School students. This exhibition brings to life images from the book with the same name, and gives the students, artists, and teachers a platform to speak about their experiences working on this project. The participants in this project hope that the work will "illuminate universal threads that bind people together, fostering a deeper understanding of the shared human experiences that transcend multicultural boundaries"
