This program will provide WSU Tri-Cities students, especially those with financial need, a unique opportunity to attend gallery and museum exhibitions during Photography Week in Portland, Oregon. Such a program is both academic and professional, providing students with the formidable occasion to garner much-needed exposure to art-based events, multimedia and technology-related installations, and access to a creative class culture in a thriving and dynamic community. The trip's program invites students to attend the public art walk through Portland's gallery district, frequent the nationally renown Portland Art Museum featuring modern, new media, and contemporary collections, and an opportunity to engage with peers in a productive, social, educational, and creative context.?
In addition to the benefits for participating students, students who attend will document the excursion through video and photography and ultimately publish their research findings online via CougSync and the DTC blog to allow for all students at WSU to witness their trip. This will serve as a broad education tool and will also be used to gain additional DTC Club membership while promoting the arts at WSU Tri-Cities.
