The Huntington News Photography Exhibit

Opening: Friday, Nov. 6, 2- 4 p.m.
Digital Media Design Studio,
Snell Library
2nd Floor, Room 200

We will be showcasing the excellent work of several student photographers from the Huntington News over the past year, all of which demonstrate the power of the image to tell a story and highlight seminal issues in our community. In the DMDS, we encourage students to use digital media resources to present educational content in expressive forums, and these photos are a powerful representation of that paradigm. Please join us to view the photos and see what the DMDS has to offer for your own creative projects. Light refreshments will be served.
