Art Gallery to Feature Student Photography
Siloam Springs, Ark. (February 10, 2009) - John Brown University is pleased to announce an upcoming art exhibit featuring thirteen of its own students, entitled “Ich bin ein Berliner!” The exhibit will open with a reception on Tuesday, Feb. 17, 6:00 p.m-7:30 p.m. in the lobby of the art building. The exhibit runs until March 5. This special exhibit will feature work from a summer study abroad trip to Berlin, Germany during which students focused on assignments derived from a concept regarding German culture. Associate Professor Neal Holland said that “above all, it was a great opportunity for undergraduate students to be featured in a gallery, as well as a great opportunity to give light to the new major in photography and showcase their insight into a culture quite different from their own”. The students featured are Hannah Miller, Jessica Zengulis, Angela Marinus, Jessica Massey, Christina Bunker, Paul Yu, Mary Shows, Kyle Mathis, and Matt Smith. Also featured in the exhibit are alumni Sue Bailey ’08, Kyle McCarthy ’08, Jessica Berens ’08, and former photography student Amy Wasser. The JBU Art Gallery is located in JBU’s art building on the main campus in Siloam Springs. Normal gallery hours for this exhibit are Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. and Sunday afternoon from 2:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m. For additional information or to set up a special showing for your organization, contact JBU’s Department of Visual Arts at (479) 238-8561.
