Glad to be Wrong
Each year, the senior Fine Art Photography Students of RIT curate a gallery show which features long-term projects made by each student in the senior class. This year we have a wide variety of personal and conceptual bodies of work that are sure to inspire!
The students learn every aspect involved in creating a successful group show. This allows the artists to greater understand the work that goes into making an exhibition. In turn, this will highlight RIT’s photography programs.
Students critique fellow artist Jackie Spaventa's work.
The money raised will be used for advertising and promotional materials, such as postcards, posters, and local newspapers and radio stations ads, and also to create necessary literature for the exhibition. We will also be providing food and beverages for the opening reception. In the past, having the funds to create a great exhibition for the seniors has helped them with future job and exhibition opportunities.
Glad to be Wrong will be held in the William Harris Gallery in the Gannett building on the RIT campus. This exhibition, curated by the Fine Art Photography seniors, will showcase each of the thesis projects they have been cultivating. The work of the 13 participating students consists of photography, video art and installation art. The show will open on Friday, March 24, 2017.
This show is a stunning event each year and a way for RIT's artists to connect with the community. This show truly exemplifies the collective knowledge has been instilled in the students. In years past, the support has been phenomenal and we are so excited and humbled to announce our show, Glad to be Wrong!
