The magic number of Rochester Institute of Technology students involved with the exhibition is 17.
Hence the name of their creative showcase, Seventeen RIT/BFA Fine Art Photography Class of 2008, which will be on view from May 2 to 26 at Gallery Kunstler at Booksmart Studio, 250 N. Goodman St. The show opens with an artists’ reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, May 2, and culminates with a graduate reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, May 23.
Seventeen is the first senior BFA photography exhibition curated by students from Photography, Fine Art II and Gallery Management within RIT’s School of Photographic Arts and Sciences. The Fine Art Photography program at RIT prepares students for a career in the fine arts: visual artists, educators, freelance artists, or in art-related institutions such as museums, archives, commercial galleries, and related art organizations.
Participating students include: Daniel Boardman, Aura Broida, Kristin Brown, Megan Charland, Andrea Donadio, Kyle Ferino, Shannon Frate, James Giffen, Kurt Heumiller, Matthew Isak, Megan Landrieux, Susan Lanier, Jack McMahon, Gretchen Moosbrugger, Janna Salmin, Madison Shelestak and Corey Valuck.
