Art Gallery Opening  
Professor Doug Calisch, Art Department Chair also welcomed the crowd in the packed gallery and commented on the momentous occasion it is for the College to have this exhibition in place, ‘Standing here in this room is a-once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. To be surrounded by the work of 7 (and it could be argued THE 7) significant American Photographers of the 20th Century is truly a remarkable occasion. Our entire community, and particularly American History, English, Philosophy, the Malcolm X institute, EQ, Rhetoric, Art, Physics, Chemistry, and Psychology will have the opportunity to contemplate the value, purpose, meaning, and techniques associated with these iconographic photographs. A show like this helps us consider the powerful role of the photographic image in the 20th century-as art, as literature, and as commentary.’
