The exhibition will run through Friday, Feb. 22.
Augustana Photo Bureau students will display a series of photographs that highlight student life on the Rock Island campus, experiences in the Quad Cities and personal interests. Live music will be performed by Augustana music students.
Area high school photographers submitted their best original photos to compete for scholarship money and prizes. Members of the Augustana Photo Bureau judged the entries, and the winners' photos will be displayed as part of the exhibition.
Augustana Photo Bureau photographers featured in the show include Drew Barnes '14, Michael
Dimock '16, Daisy Hoang '14, Angelica Lindqvist '16, Long Nguyen '16 and Kristin Walden '16.
The Augustana Photo Bureau was established in 2005 to support the publications, events, news and online needs of the Office of Communication and Marketing. The bureau has grown to support other departments and special events on campus. Under the direction of its advisor, Marla Alvarado Neuerburg, the students have the opportunity to learn and apply photographic skills in a variety of settings.
The Augustana Video Bureau began in May 2012 to highlight life on campus from the perspective of students, faculty and staff. Videos range from short, narrative pieces featuring interviews to longer-form productions of notable speeches and lectures on and off campus. Advisor Andrew Petersen encourages students to experiment with different shooting and editing techniques to build video production skills. Students also strengthen interpersonal skills through video interviews.
