View along the south wall (right) toward the southeast corner of the Bowdoin Gallery on the upper level of the Walker Art Building. The exhibition is "James Bowdoin's America: Paintings and Decorative Arts, 1660-1830," which was shown in the Bowdoin Gallery from August 08, 2013 through January 04, 2015. Created in 1965 as part of President Johnson's War on Poverty, the Upward Bound program was designed to give high school students from low-income backgrounds a boost in getting into college. Over 2,000 students have graduated from Bowdoin's Upward Bound. During the summer residential experience students live on the Bowdoin campus and attend classes in math, lab science, foreign language, and writing taught by local high school teachers. Graduates of Upward Bound are twice as likely as their low-income, first-generation peers to attend college and five times more likely to graduate by age 24. In this image members of the Summer 2014 Upward Bound attend a tour of the Bowdoin College Museum of Art given by two of the Museum's summer interns: Jessica Holley '15 (left rear) and Bridget Killian '16 (center rear).
