Angel Baked Cookies is a photography project that will be on view in two locations: the PPRC Gallery at UMSL and Chronicle Coffee in Grand Center.
In the basement of Saints Teresa & Bridget Church, students giggle and complain as they mix giant batches of cookie dough, package individually wrapped treats, and plan large holiday shipments as ordered. Angel Baked Cookies, established in 2007 with three teen-determined, taste-tested recipes, was the brainchild of North Grand Neighborhood Services in collaboration with local youth who needed jobs. In implementing this idea, a small and delicious enterprise was born that employs teenagers while giving them on-the-job training in how to manage a small business.
The natural, exuberant curiosity and creative expression of the Angels informed this Photography Project curriculum. The portraits flourished under their playfulness and style, capturing moments ranging from the silly staging of flour fights to sacred hugs in the sanctuary of Saints Teresa & Bridget church upstairs.
Opening reception for UMSL location is January 15th at noon.
Opening reception for Chronicle Coffee is January 17th at 5:30.
