ACG Art Photo Competition on Water

ACG Art Photo Competition on Water

ACG Art in collaboration with the Center of Excellence for Sustainability, which aims to make ACG a sustainable learning community, organized this photography competition focusing on the theme of water at Deree.

WHERE: DEREE - The American College of Greece, Main Corridor.

WHEN: 23 - 28 April 2012 (Awards given at Deree Student Lounge at 13:00 on Monday, 23 April 2012).

THEME: The theme is "water" 1) as manifest in nature - lakes, rivers, sea, wetlands, etc. 2) as evidenced in consumption or 3) as subjected to pollution.

PARTICIPATION: By 12 April, ACG Art received 35 entries, which break down evenly in the following three groups from the College Community: PIERCE / DEREE STUDENTS [12]; FACULTY / STAFF [11]; and ALUMNI / FRIEND [12]. It is worth noting that 6 photographs originate in the ACG Art collection. All the selected photographs, varying as much in material and dimension as in aesthetic sensibility and programmatic concern, display a remarkable array of responses to the theme of water. The entries are published herewith online and exhibited at Deree Main Corridor with the care of the ACG Art Curator Megakles Rogakos. Aspects of the exhibition are published at the address below:
