Arts Alive Participatory Event

Participatory Art Display Through a Stevenson University Arts Alive! Arts Integration grant,

Inna Alesina, M.F.A., Assistant Professor of Art and Stephanie Verni, M.F.A., Professor, Business Communication, collaborated in the Advertising Campaign class to help students gain a better understanding of the Stevenson community through the use of participatory art. Students created and integrated participatory stations around campus—a moving wall, a large chalkboard wall, and secret boxes—to solicit feedback from the community about various prompts. Afterward, students created typographic art in visiting artist Zvezdana Stojmirovic’s one-day workshop, where they shared and promoted concepts learned in class. The result of the project is exhibited in the display in the Manning Academic Center:

Corrin Johnson photographed by André Chung during his internship with Mr. Chung.

VCD student Corrin Johnson recently completed an internship with photographer, André Chung. Corrin was introduced to Mr. Chung through Professor Elena Volkova. Corrin seized the opportunity and benefited from the mentorship provided through the internship.

The photo above is a test shot taken by Chung while they were on assignment at the Capitol Building in DC. The two got to the location early to set up the scene and Chung took test shots of Corrin to make sure the lighting was right.

On other shoots, Chung asked Corrin to periodically take photos of him while he worked. Corrin’s photos would be used for a workshop about lighting and Chung also needed material that illustrated how he works. Corrin was given complete freedom on the photos he took in order to test his abilities.

The internship taught Corrin an extensive amount about the photography industry from lighting and photo editing to the business side. André Chung taught him about how to price yourself as a photographer, share photos with clients, and how to work efficiently.

“Overall, he was an excellent photographer to learn from and an amazing and effective mentor. Even though the internship is over he hires me from time to time to help him assist on some of his bigger shoots. He also welcomes me to his studio to edit projects if I ask.” – Corrin Johnson
