Arcadia Exhibitions, in collaboration with Marketing and Communications, is pleased to announce a call for entries to all currently enrolled Arcadia students for “The Royal Visit: A Juried Student Photography Exhibition, which will be presented in the Judith Taylor Gallery, Landman Library, beginning in January 2023.

The show will consist of photographs taken at Arcadia’s newly acquired 125 Royal Ave. property (formerly Bishop McDevitt High School) prior to the start of renovations to upgrade various safety systems.

Documentary pictures

For many members of our community, the documentary pictures in this exhibition will serve as their first glimpse at this new space, spurring conversations about how this building might best be utilized by the University in positive and transformative ways.

Tour the facility

We will be offering students the opportunity to tour the facility and to document the offices, classrooms, laboratories, athletic facilities, the theater stage, the cafeteria, a chapel, a television studio, grounds, and other spaces, as well as the unique objects and ephemera they contain – exactly as they were left by the previous occupants. 

The selected photographs will be printed and professionally framed for the exhibition. Prizes will be awarded for best in show and honorable mention.
