On Sept. 19, the Ackland will open its semester exhibition, “PhotoVision: Selections from a Decade of Collecting.” The show will feature more than 150 photographs from the museum’s comprehensive permanent collection.
Frank Porter Graham Student Union
The bottom floor of the Frank Porter Graham Student Union is currently featuring photos selected from the Carolina Snapshots contest. Students are encouraged to post pictures to Instagram and Twitter about their UNC experience using the hashtag #CarolinaSnapshots.
“We file pictures and put them into a cool collage for everyone to see,” said Union office assistant Catherine Clark. “The posts are meant to capture what it means to be a student at Carolina.”
Upstairs in the Union is a new exhibit called “Life and Landscapes: Exploring the Diversity of India.” Opened Tuesday, the photo exhibition by UNC student Evonne McArthur is a collaboration with UNC junior Pranav Haravu, Duke University sophomore Roma Sonik and UNC professors John Caldwell and Afroz Taj. It aims to showcase snapshots of the diversity of India.
East Franklin Street’s FRANK Gallery is currently displaying their second annual “Rubbish 2 Runway” fashion show piece. The event, which features clothing designs created solely from recyclable materials, promotes creativity and sustainability. More than 20 participants submitted designs for the project.
“It gives locals a chance to get their work in a gallery, which doesn’t always happen,” said FRANK Gallery intern and UNC senior Anna Offerdahl.
The exhibition is on display through Oct. 5, and Rubbish 2 Runway’s “trashion show” for the pieces will take place on Friday in the gallery.
FRANK Gallery’s featured artist for the month of September is member artist Alan Dehmer. His piece, “Backyard Flowers,” will also be on display in the gallery through Oct. 5.
