Blast Off!


In the hectic rush of these early school days, an oasis of calm awaits all who venture into the IRC to lose themselves in some stunning photographs of the world around us.

A new student photography exhibit will be on display in the IRC starting September 1st and running until October 15th, 2013. The theme of the exhibit is “Blast Off” and refers to the start of the new school year.

All the photographs on display were taken by students in Clay Sewell’s second semester photography class and represent samples from several of their assignments in the class. Approximately half of the student’s work is digital and half are photos developed in the class dark room from black and white film.

The winner of the IMSA Art Fund Award last year, senior Lael Costa, has a photo of graffiti in Chicago in this exhibit.  The purpose of the IMSA Art Fund Award is to celebrate and display outstanding student artistic creativity through a cash purchase award. Each year a student is selected based on their original artwork. For more information on the IMSA Art Fund Award, visit
