Panola College believes in the value that art can bring to our community. Nowhere is that value more apparent than at the Allison Gallery in the M.P. Baker Library. The Allison Gallery offers students and the community a variety of exhibits and special events throughout the year. It is through your support that these events are possible and as a sponsor, you receive unique marketing opportunities, visibility and recognition.

Once Upon a Playground – $1000 

Date: January 2 – February 2017

Information: Once Upon a Playground offers a visual tribute to these vanishing playgrounds of our past, celebrating their place in American culture and the collective memories of generations. Co-curated by Carol Johnson, recently retired curator of photography at the Library of Congress, and Brenda Biondo, author of Once Upon a Playground: A Celebration of Classic American Playgrounds, 1920–1975 (University Press of New England, 2014), the exhibition combines contemporary photographs of classic equipment, vintage images of playground scenes from the Library of Congress’ collections, and images from old playground catalogs and other ephemera. By bringing together these diverse sources, the exhibition highlights a playground vernacular that developed over decades, while providing historical context and cultural insight.
