LLILAS Benson Student Photography Exhibition
The annual LLILAS Benson Student Photography Exhibition kicks off its fourth year with an opening reception in Sid Richardson Hall on September 30. This annual exhibition — sponsored by the Nettie Lee Benson Latin American Collection and the Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies — features photographs taken by University of Texas at Austin graduate and undergraduate students during study abroad in Latin America and U.S. Latino communities. The images highlight the expansive research, fieldwork and volunteer activities in which students of Latin American and Latin@ studies across the campus have engaged during the previous year.
“This exhibit, now a well-established LLILAS Benson tradition, highlights the striking talent of our students and exemplifies one of the important elements of our mission — to learn about Latin America through being there, up-close and deeply engaged with the subjects of research,” says LLILAS Benson Director Charles Hale.
The exhibition is on view through January at the Benson First Floor Exhibition Hall, SRH 1.100, and is free and open to the public.
