Hidden Depths: A Student Exhibition

Permanent Exhibit

Hidden Depths is curated by students in the Southeast Center of Photographic Studies at Daytona State College. It is the second annual exhibit at the Gary R. Libby Gallery in the News-Journal Center. Libby's philanthropic pursuits at the NJC focus on providing opportunities for students to work alongside professionals from the museum and photography fields, and to engage these fields through the curation and installation of a photography exhibition.

Libby also generously supports DSC photography students through the Gary R. Libby Curatorship, a scholarship through the Daytona State College Foundation.
