Help shine a light on voting rights and equal rights for RIT's Big Shot No. 35. Volunteers are needed to help illuminate the National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House, located at 17 Madison St. in the city of Rochester, and the surrounding neighborhood. 

The RIT Big Shot, described as “painting with light,” engages student and community volunteers by asking them to provide a light source while RIT photographers shoot an extended exposure image. The first photograph is anticipated to be taken at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 6. Participants should plan to arrive between 4:30 and 5 p.m. and bring their own flashlights or light sources. The event is free and open to the public. 

Sign up

The Big Shot is a signature event for RIT’s College of Art and Design and is led by the School of Photographic Arts and Sciences. The National Technical Institute for the Deaf is also a sponsor.

About the Big Shot

RIT started its Big Shot project in 1987. The event has traveled to a number of national landmarks and twice crossed the Atlantic Ocean. Through their viewfinders, RIT Big Shot photographers have captured landmarks in the United States such as Kodak Tower in Rochester; Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky.; the Alamo in San Antonio; and the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. Internationally, the RIT team has captured Pile Gate in Dubrovnik, Croatia, and the Royal Palace in Stockholm, Sweden.
