Photography - Department Trips
The Photography Area organizes student trips led by faculty to nearby and out-of-state locations. These learning experiences provide students the opportunity to visit the latest production in their career or get inspired to produce new, meaningful work.
The photography program often makes field trips to the Art Institute and the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago. This popular excursion enables students to see the latest innovations in the field as well as original historic prints first hand. Photographs below by David Rathbun.
Desert Southwest Workshop
The Photography and Art Desert Southwest Workshop class was first offered in the Summer of 2006 semester, giving students in both programs a chance to work together on the open road. Students travel with faculty members Anthony Thompson (photography) and Dellas Henke (printmaking) to locations around the southwest, including Magdalena and Santa Fe, NM, The Chaco Culture Historical Park, NM, Lake Powell, UT, Goblin Valley State Park, UT, Arches National Park, UT, the Grand Mesa, CO, and Anderson Ranch Arts Center, CO. The most recent trip took place during the summer of 2009.
