Members of the photography program in the Department of Art and Art History and the Oak Cliff Chamber of Commerce recently teamed up to create an exhibition and photo book celebrating the neighborhood along Bishop and Davis streets in Dallas.
The work will be on display at the Kessler Theatre from March 30 to April 7. The photo book of the project, titled “davis/bishop2011.doc,” will be available for purchase at an April 6 reception from 6-9 p.m. The reception will also be a fundraiser for neighborhood Dallas ISD high schools, Sunset and Adamson.
Professor Kenda North and members of the Oak Cliff Chamber guided 18 student photographers as they documented the architecture, shop owners and general life of the neighborhood. North said the work provides a visual interpretation of the area, utilizing both traditional and nontraditional forms of photography.
The photo book was edited and designed by UT Arlington students. Michael Anglin, Planning Commissioner for District 3, wrote the introduction.
