Ursinus College Artist-in-Residence Donald E. Camp will offer a Gallery Talk in the Philip and Muriel Berman Museum of Art Wednesday April 6, at 7 p.m., relating to his exhibition, “Dust-Shaped Hearts: The Photography of Donald E. Camp.” The free talk, open to the public, will be in the Upper Gallery. Refreshments will be served.
With his ongoing series, Camp, assistant professor of art, seeks to counter stereotypes, presenting images of those who have quietly, yet profoundly, enriched our culture. The series acknowledges that the struggle against ignorance and intolerance is a universal one. Camp’s work is characterized by both the unique process he uses to produce his prints as well as by his in-depth exploration of the dignity and nobility that can be found in the human face. Camp’s work has been recognized with a number of awards, including a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship and NEA and Pew Fellowships in the Arts.
