Gallery Exhibit Opening: We Came For This

February 7, 2013

Join Brooks Institute for an Artist Reception for its latest exhibit at Gallery 27, "We Came For This." The reception runs from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 7.

We Came For This is a look at three different photographic projects that discuss social situations where people are brought together to share an experience. With his photographs of "Our Lady of the Rock," Stephen Tamiesie documents a spiritual ritual in which people flock to see evidence of an apparition. Cara Robbins takes portraits of emerging indie bands that she and many fellow music devotees gather to listen to. Erika P. Rodriguez's project is a look at Isla Vista’s Annual Halloween event that garners an estimated 30,000 people to a costume party in the streets. We Came For This is just a small glimpse at what draws us together.

This exhibit runs from Feb. 7 to March 29.
