Augustana student photographers and musicians to showcase talent
2009 Jan 29Augustana Sights and Sounds returns for a second year to The Bucktown Center for the Arts (225 E. 2 nd Street, Davenport) on Friday, January 30 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The free event showcases unique photography and musical entertainment by Augustana College students. The successful program is expanding this year to include featured photography by area high school students. Augustana students will display a series of photographs that feature student life on the Rock Island campus, exploring the world through international study programs, or their experiences in the Quad Cities. The event will incorporate the photography displayed with several existing galleries, music and comedy groups. The Augustana Photo Bureau along with MidCoast Fine Arts are coordinating the event during Bucktown's monthly Final Friday art show. Augustana Photo Bureau students featured in the show include: Ashley Biess, Corynn Hanson, Bryan Inness, Maren Mathisen, Kelly Morgan, Matthew Peters, Amy Pearson, Kaitlin Sirois, and Dalsem Yang. Senior marketing majors, Ashley Biess and Kelly Morgan, and co-managers of the Augustana Photo Bureau assisted with the planning of the event. High school photographers can submit their work-based on the categories of emotion, reflection, geometry and forgotten places-- by January 19 for judging by members of the Augustana Photo Bureau. Winners of the contest will receive a scholarship to Augustana College or a one-year subscription to an online gallery program. The featured artwork from both The Augustana Photo Bureau and area high school students will remain on display at The Bucktown Center for the Arts through Thursday, February 26, 2009. The Augustana Photo Bureau was established in 2005 to support the publication, events, news and web needs of the Office of Communication and Marketing.
