The Liberal Arts and Business in Creative Industry programs also will be there to tell you all about the Minors available for you to consider. And of course, there will be lunch.

"My hope for this exhibition is for ... creatives to realize their potential through an opportunity that encourages and acknowledges their talent... Many/most artists are filled with self-doubt and really need to just be seen to give them that extra push to launch themselves into a unique and self-rewarding career" says Ophelia Chambliss ('Coming Into View' curator, assisted by Curatorial Fellows Karim Gavins and Lynzee Littlejohn). 'Coming Into View' will be displayed in PCA&D's Main Gallery through March 1. On March 1 from 5-8 pm there will be a closing reception for the show which is open to the public. Please join us! 🎨

PhotoVogue, an online platform for emerging and established photographers around the world, often acts as a resource for the global Conde Nast publishing empire. Recently, Photography & Video senior Cameren White's work was selected by PhotoVogue to feature on its platform. He's submitted work before, White says, but this is the first time that it was selected — on the same day he submitted it — for inclusion in PhotoVogue's collection. ... Congratulations, Cameren!

Hear ye, hear ye...on this February 2nd, Punxsutawney Prince was awoken from his wintry nap at dawn. Prince looked to the skies, with conviction, and denoted this clear prediction. "I see the morning, a splendid crowd, their courage and spirit, both strong and loud. The time has come, a sense of glee, anticipation and joy, the air is free. Each plays their role, in this script, I'm the sage, a guide on this educational stage. But, behold, a feathered trace, upon my stage, a peacock's grace. No matter the measure, the forecast's clear, thirteen weeks until graduation draws near!"

There's a new show decorating the walls of the CORE Gallery! The exhibition, "Wonderstruck Unity", features work by members of BLAC, the College's Black Led Art Coalition and was open to all members working in all mediums. Tune in every Thursday this month to see the work featured in this exhibition! ... Work featured: Nyrus Morris-Hayes '24, Design Thinking; Dominique Bryson '24, Illustration; Adanya Johnson '25, Fine Art

Stephen Mallon considers himself a "photographer at heart and a hired gun for filmmaking" ... but that hasn't stopped him from making a name for himself at the highest levels in both disciplines. He's turned his lenses to recording the "industrial-scale creations" that surround us much of the time, but instead of focusing on those creations at the peak of their power, he often records them in various states of decline, of disuse, of being transformed into something new. And there sometimes is a human element present as well, — or, perhaps, just the abstracted bulk of a human-created machine or structure as it enters a new phase. Mallon will be the guest of PCA&D on Thursday, Feb. 8, joining us for an Artist Talk in the Atrium from 12:45 to 1:45 PM. ... All are invited and welcome to attend the event! 🎨 📸 Find full story in our BIO! 🔗
