UCI Student Photographs at the Viewpoint Gallery

The UCI Undergraduate Photography Exhibit, sponsored by Illuminations: The Chancellor’s Arts & Culture Initiative, is on display at the Viewpoint Gallery in the Student Center now through Wednesday, October 3. The exhibit is now in its fourth year. For the 2019 exhibit, students were challenged to capture photographic images of the plants and animals of the California landscape accompanied by a one-minute video explaining the significance of their submission. Of the 350 photographs received, a jury of UCI faculty selected 20 for the gallery.

Three Buzz Winners in the challenge are chosen from the entries for generating the most buzz.
