Photography, Transformation, and Peace
How can photography be used to convey a message of peace? In conjunction with The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama, on view in SCU's Harrington Learning Commons, Architects of Peace photographer Michael Collopy joins Binh Danh of The Missing Peace, along with Renee Billingslea, Photography Lecturer, and Andrea Pappas, Associate Professor, of the Department of Art and Art History to discuss transforming the world with the lens of a camera. This program is co-sponsored by the de Saisset Museum, SCU's Department of Art and Art History, and SCU's Development Office.
The Missing Peace features a selection of 25 artworks by internationally renowned artists Richard Avedon, Squeak Carnwath, Chuck Close, Binh Danh, and Mike and Doug Starn, among others. The full exhibition featured 88 artists from more than 40 countries who were asked to use photography, painting, sculpture, and installation to convey the Dalai Lama's peaceful message. The exhibition is on view in the Department of Archives & Special Collections, 3rd Floor Gallery, Joanne E. Harrington Learning Commons, Sobrato Family Technology Center, and Orradre Library from September 12 through December 14, 2011.
