This fall marks the 50th anniversary of the Black Panther Party's founding. The Black Panther Party was one of the most creative and influential responses to racism and economic inequality in American history. The group would become emblematic of the Black Power movement that helped shape the tumultuous years of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The Panthers electrified a generation of black youth. They remain cult heroes today, nearly 50 years after their founding.
The exhibit--which is located in the corridors of North Gate Hall--will run from August 29, 2016 until January 5, 2017.
Master photographer Brian Griffin will tutor a small and intimate group of 12 photographers on studio portraiture and still life.

The AIPAD Public Program will be held on Saturday, April 16 and will include informative discussion sessions that feature prominent leaders in the world of fine art photography. This year's Public Program will feature "The Photobook Today: A Discussion of the Evolving Medium" at 10am, moderated by Steven Kasher.
New technologies and new media have produced an astounding flourish of photobook creativity. The old model of books that are collections of images competes with books that are authorial works cover to cover. How can we best nurture the ecology of these two types of publications?
Michael Itkoff, Harper Levine, Lesley A. Martin, and gallerty artist Leo Rubinfein.
