Photography and Intermedia Collective

The Photography and Intermedia Collective is a nonhierarchical organization that seeks to further the creative development of its members and expose the community to fine art, through exhibitions and events. The organization is involved in two to three exhibitions per semester, which could range from on campus, in the state, or around the country. Often there is a common theme for the exhibit, other times; it is a diverse collection of work showing the member's personal style and artistic direction. The photography and intermedia collective travels to different cities to visit museums, galleries, install shows and make connections with other students and professionals to further our futures and the future of the organization.
