Worldview: A Photography Exhibit, was created to feature combined photo works by students who have experienced a Lipscomb Global Learning program.
But it took a little extra time to get it opened.
The exhibit opened Oct. 28 and will continue to be open for students to walk through and experience until Jan. 8.
The original Oct. 21 opening was delayed due to shipping issues. The exhibit was rescheduled to open first thing in the morning Oct. 28, but was pushed back even then.
“We are trying to get it up by the end of the day,” said Mia Jaye, Lipscomb’s program coordinator and gallery assistant.
The pictures were finally hung and the exhibit was open that evening.
The John C. Hutcheson Gallery, located in the east wing of the institution’s Beaman Library, is brand new to the campus.
After over a week’s worth of delays the gallery is up and running and several Global Learning alumni have stopped in to see if their pictures were selected.
One of those alums, Brianna Burch, said: “the pictures that were selected are really cool and I hope they do something like this again. I think it’s really cool to be able to see other students’ experiences.”
Burch has been to the United Kingdom, Italy, Ireland, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Vatican City.
The visual arts program decided to create an exhibit where students could submit their own work from their experiences abroad. The photos have been curated by two School of Art and Design students Haley Herold and Grant Gasser.
