In April, Studio Upstate hosted “Seeing Through Their Eyes,” a photography exhibit by Spartanburg students depicting the natural world around them during the pandemic. The project, a collaboration between the Spartanburg Science Center, the Spartanburg Area Conservancy and the USC Upstate Foundation, distributed 325 disposable cameras and nature guides to students and encouraged them to go outside and explore. Students were also given guided tours of some places, including the USC Upstate arboretum, where biology professor Jon Storm led a nature walk. From a group of 30 photos that were selected for display, residents voted on the three to receive community choice awards.
