Just to give you a little info on the Blog, this is the second try at the departmental blog, it was revamped back in June, and since then we have had about 20000 “visits”. We hope that this communication platform is proving useful, and as always we invite you the reader to send us content. If you have a website, blog, etc. and would like to have it “linked to” from us on our friends page please pass along your url, and we will do so. If you have received an award, or are showing your work, or maybe you are curating a show, please let us know, we will share your news. And of course, if you are looking for opportunities, remember, two great places to look start your search are at the Society of Photographic Education’s (SPE) site, and the College Art Association’s (CAA) site. Both of these organizations have numerous opportunities listed, and best of all most of them are free, so take advantage of these chances always found as links in our Resources page.
So speaking of opportunities here are a few new ones…
