Springfield, Ohio – In yet another example of Wittenberg University students learning outside the traditional campus classroom, seven art students accompanied Assistant Professor of Art Dan McInnis to the Midwest Society for Photographic Education’s Conference at the Netherlands Plaza Hotel in Cincinnati, Ohio, Oct.11–14.
Lauren Houser, class of 2013 from Fort Wayne, Ind.; Ashley Berg, class of 2013 from Springfield, Ohio; Carey Keny, class of 2013 from Bexley, Ohio; Martin Lukk, class of 2014 from Tallinn, Estonia; Kate Causbie, class of 2014 from Edmunds, Wash.; Henry Kempker, class of 2015 from New Albany, Ohio; and Eileen Collins, class of 2014 from London, Ohio, exhibited their work in an exhibition juried by the Cincinnati Museum of Art’s photography curator James Crump.
“In addition to attending lecture sessions, hearing about other students’ and professional artists’ work, and volunteering their time, Wittenberg’s students also participated in a large exhibit featuring their own work in a show, titled ‘Thunderdome,’ which included 10 regional universities with more than 500 works on display,” McInnis said.
McInnis also conducted a four-person panel during the conference titled “Teaching Digital Photographic Media: Challenges and Solutions.”
“The panel discussed ways in which instructors of digital media can teach more effectively, and some of the challenges programs face when approaching such complex teaching tools,” McInnis said.
