New art exhibit displays photos from Brueggeman Fellows' world travels

The exhibit represent a sampling of photos taken by students in the six years of the program | January 27, 2010

Xavier University is opening a new art exhibit in the Gallagher Student Center of photos taken by students of the Winter-Cohen Brueggeman Fellows program. They are on display on the second floor of the Gallagher Student Center.

The fellowship is one of the most unusual programs at Xavier. It has no set curriculum or format other than the fact that each Fellow creates his or her own project and takes on the responsibility for its completion. These projects have taken the Fellows all over the world—to 28 different countries thus far—where they do research and immerse themselves in the daily activiies of the countries. Their experiences are captured in the projects they produce, in the ways their lives change and in the photographs they take during their travels.

This exhibit is just a sampling of the many photos taken by the Brueggeman Fellows in the six years the program has existed. The 25 photos selected are the choice of a professional photographer, who based his decision on the quality of the photograph, as it would have been impossible to represent all the Fellows and their travels.

The exhibit is free and open to the public.
