The Community Stepping Stones serves at-risk teens and, for a recent project, tapped into both science and art. Teens studied and canoed the entire Hillsborough River over several trips. They also applied what they learned to a variety of artistic mediums such as ceramics, painting, drama and photography. You see examples here. See all the work at "I Am River," on view at the Art Gallery at Hillsborough Community College's Ybor campus, Palm Avenue and 15th Street, Tampa. Stop by from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday for a free reception featuring a dramatic performance at 6 p.m. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday; and noon to 7 p.m. Tuesday. Free. (813) 253-7674.
