In the News: Our New Photography & Imaging Major

The Art Department has been featured in the QC Campus newspaper for our new Photography & Imaging major!

“Through the photography and imaging major, students will develop the skills required to pursue a career in photography with abilities that could also apply to other career paths, such as social media management or marketing. “Photography today in 2019 is so ubiquitous, it is something that we come across on a daily basis,” Professor Gonzalez added, “So much of the information that we receive, the content, is image based and much of it is photo based.” Photography is an evolving field and through this program, students will learn the traditional instruction of the art of photography and it’s commercial aspects, along with how to apply these skills to a variety of career paths.”

Read more at The Knight News! Interested students can also read more information about the new major on the Photography & Imaging BFA page.

College Night at the Met: Notes on Fashion

Students are invited to the Met after hours for a night of dancing, fashion, and art making in celebration of student fashion designers and The Costume Institute exhibition Camp: Notes on Fashion, on Thursday, May 23rd, 6:30-9:30pm.

In March, undergraduate and graduate student fashion designers submitted preliminary designs inspired by images from the exhibition Camp: Notes on Fashion. From among many excellent entries, Met curators chose ten finalists to fabricate their designs. During this event, curators and special guests judge the finished garments and select two winners (one undergraduate student and one graduate student) and two runners-up. Students can vote for one overall fan favorite.

This event is open to currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students only. Space is limited and advance registration is required.
