HACC Student Honors Photography Exhibit Opens Nov. 21, 2016
HARRISBURG, Pa. – An exhibit of student photography will be on display Nov. 21-Dec. 9, 2016, in the Rose Lehrman Art Gallery on the Harrisburg Campus of HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College.
The exhibit showcases over 50 photographs made by current students. The collection covers a variety of subject matter, including landscapes, portraits, still lives, nudes and architecture. A public reception for the students will be held Dec. 1 from 5:30-7 p.m. in the gallery.
HACC’s photography program includes a traditional black-and-white photo developing lab, 14 individual color dark rooms, a digital photography classroom and a “Northern Light” studio with a retractable roof that allows students to photograph objects in perfectly diffused, natural daylight.
Since 1988, HACC students have competed in photography competitions with over 2,000 other colleges and universities and have consistently been recognized among the top three winners in each competition. HACC students have been nominated for and awarded the “Pulitzer Prize in Photography.”
Rose Lehrman Art Gallery hours are 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Friday and 5-7 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, or by appointment.
The gallery received state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and from the National Endowment for the Arts.
