The Honors Photography students, under the direction of their professor Al Wildey, canvassed the Island taking photos of everyone at their jobs, at play, and sometimes just walking down the street. They then used the individual portraits to create a digital photographic composite mosaic.
One hundred portraits were used and over 400 photos distributed throughout the mosaic, which created a universal “face of Beaver Island.” The impressive project completed by the 13 students in the Honors Beaver Island Environmental Portrait course is on display at the Community Center.
CMU has planned a whole summer of wonderful events – field trips, lectures, an open house at the IGLR facility- all to help celebrate their 50th year on Beaver Island!
We’re all sure glad they are here. Talk about wonderful neighbors!
