The Council for the Arts at MIT is sponsoring a new student membership program with Boston University's Photographic Resource Center (PRC) at 602 Commonwealth Ave.
Founded in 1976, the not-for-profit PRC provides a range of programs and services to the arts community. A showplace for national and international photographers, its exhibitions and educational programs are guided by "a philosophical inquiry into the intersection of photography with other aesthetic, professional and critical discourses to the arts."
MIT undergraduate and graduate students will have free unlimited access to the PRC galleries and library and admission to lectures, workshops and other special events at the discounted member price. They will also be able to enter their work into the 2001 juried members' exhibition, presented in the PRC's Klebenov Gallery, at no additional charge.
Students should present their MIT ID card at the PRC for free entry.
The Office of the Arts will receive copies of the bimonthly PRC newsletter, which can be picked-up in Rm E15-205, the Source (Stratton Student Center lobby) and Rotch Library (Rm 7-238).
More information on the PRC can be found at http://www.bu.edu/prc/.
