In May 2011, 2012 and 2013 Christine Holtz, Robert Morris University professor of media arts, accompanied photography students to Galway, Dublin, and Sneem. While there, the students were challenged to develop themes for their photography and shoot with the goal of sharing their work online and in books. In preparation for this exhibition, students explored a variety of photographic genres both commercial and fine art-based. This exhibition showcases three years of student photographers from Robert Morris University’s flourishing Media Arts Photography BFA, BA and minor programs. Visitors will enjoy seeing each student’s unique approach to the media.
