Cameras for a Cure
March 27th - 7:00pm - Hutton Honors College (Great Room) The goal of the event is to raise money for cancer research at the Bloomington Hospital Regional Cancer Institute. To fundraise we will hold a silent auction of photographs from PhoSo members . Cameras for a Cure will also be highlighting 10 cancer survivors treated at the BHRCI through shadow boxes and speeches. These special guests are made up of a wide variety of Bloomington community members. Highlights of the event will include a live harpist and food provided by the Middle Way House. We do not charge admission.
The Photography Society (PhoSo) is a student run photography club at Indiana University.
The Indiana University Photography Society, or PhoSo, started at the begining of the spring semester of 2008. The founding members included Derek Cutting (President), Joshua Cisney (Vice President), and Esther Uduehi (Treasurer). The culmination of all the efforts of the first semester led to the first gallery exhibition. The gallery was in the Indiana Memorial Union Gallery, where the Starbucks is located. There were over 13 contributing artists with a variety of different types of photography. It was a big success.
During the spring semester of 2008 PhoSo became officially sponsored by the Hutton Honors College through the Assistant Dean, Lynn Cochran.
Our mission is to promote fine art photography to the students of IU and the community of Bloomington. Anyone can join. All we ask is a $5 membership fee, which will pay itself off many times over. If you are still unsure of whether you want to join or not, just come to a few of our meetings and see what you think.
Every semester PhoSo will hold at least one gallery highlighting our work. Any member of PhoSo can contribute work. On certain occasions our galleries will be used to raise money for certain causes. For example, we do an annual gallery auction with the Bloomington Hospital Positive Link at their World AIDS Day Gala.
Membership is open to IU students, faculty, and staff as well as the general public.
