The Dubuque Museum of Art is proud to host the 4th annual exhibition of photographs by members of the Dubuque Camera Club. The theme of this year’s exhibition of 16 photographs focuses on Dubuque’s iconic architecture, in all of its iterations and stages whether historic, modern, new, old, neglected, or restored. The challenge for club members was to bring a fresh awareness and appreciation to a well-documented subject.
DUMA is excited to continue its partnership with this local group dedicated to promoting a greater appreciation for the art and skill of photography. Those who work in creative fields often work in isolation out of necessity and preference but when they have the occasion to participate in a group, or collaborate with another artist, the exposure can bring new ideas and directions to their work. In a group like the Dubuque Camera Club where any skill level is welcome and the medium of photography is widely accessible, the motivated beginner can get started quickly and find an invaluable source of knowledge and support.
