Current/Upcoming Exhibitions

September – December, 2017

Historical Library. Opening reception date to be announced.
To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the school, two important alumni artists will be featured in the Historical library. Jared Moossy, '98 photojournalist, will exhibit photographs. The Austin-based documentary photographer was in Libya during the uprising against Muammar Gaddafi, he was in Afghanistan at the height of the U.S.-led campaign against the Taliban and he traveled to Mexico to cover that nation's war on drugs. Each time, he risked his life to bring back the news, highlighting the perilous yet essential role photojournalists play — a role he helped present in HBO’s documentary series Witness.
