A collaboration between Crealde School of Art and the Winter Garden Heritage Foundation offers a photographic window into the culture and landscape of Lake Apopka. Highlights from the traveling exhibition are on display at Winter Garden City Hall through Oct. 31, and a special reception and gallery walk with project director Peter Schreyer is from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13.

City Hall is at 300 W. Plant St., Winter Garden.

In 2017, two Crealdé documentary photography instructors guided students in creating photographs and oral histories that explore the relationship between Lake Apopka and the diverse people who call the shores of who work and live on the lake’s shores. The project traces the lake from the early citrus and tourism industry to the muck farming industry, environmental destruction and current efforts of restoration.
