Description: You are invited to participate in a photo and video exhibition. This exhibition is a part of a series of events, entitled “Humanities in Continuing Education,” and hosted by the College of General Studies in conjunction with the Provost’s Year of the Humanities. The theme of the exhibit is “Human Beings/Being Human.” We invite works that examine the human experience in its many facets. From pictures you have taken abroad or at home to video projects completed for a course, ultimately, we are looking for visual art that captures the diversity of faces, emotions, places, voices, actions, and reactions, and what it means to be human. The top artworks will receive awards. This event is open to the public; bring your friends and family to celebrate with you.
