Event Description

Between 1980-1998 Bob Campagna extensively photographed the diverse and wondrous life of Cornell College, including athletics, architecture, social gatherings, concerts, official guests, faculty, and individual students. Of particular note were the numerous "Men of Cornell" and one "Women of Cornell" calendars he helped produce as fundraisers for the Phi-O and Newt social groups. His Homecoming, 2022 exhibit "Faces of Hope: the Women and Men of Cornell" features select calendar (and other) images of students photographed as undergraduates, sprinkled with a few faculty who were featured images. Now his student subjects are in their 50s and early 60s, having lived full lives since these portraits were taken. "I had taken tens of thousands of Cornell photographs during that era," Campagna said, adding "My images provide a glimpse into the vast student lives of that time. It's time travel!" Campagna's exhibit will have an estimated 130 images, which he describes as "a mere fragent of the images I took. But I had to start somewhere."

The "Faces of Hope: the Women and Men of Cornell" exhibit will display during the full month of October, 2022 at Mount Vernon Creates, 121 First Street West.
