The Opening Reception is Friday, October 25, 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. to coincide with SPE’s October national conference in Milwaukee.

“There is evidence of multiple current trends in contemporary photography, including themes of representation, identity, the changing landscape, and the manipulation of both new and antiquated imaging tools,” said Jon Horvath, a MIAD New Studio Practice: Fine Arts professor.

Professional works in the exhibit were selected by Jennifer Murray, Executive Director of Filter Photo. Student works were chosen by Alejandro Cartagena, a photographer and educator based in Monterrey, Mexico.
