SFMOMA Museum Day Fall 2009

Museum Days

Several times a year the Pacific Union College Visual Arts Department sponsors a trip to visit one of the major museums in San Francisco Bay Area. These trips have included the SF Museum of Modern Art (pictured above), The Palace of Legion of Honor, and the de Young Museum. Faculty and students spend their day soaking in the culture as they are able to connect much of what they see and experience to their work and studies in the department. It's been one of the highlights of the quarter for the department. These past and future trips are just one of the perks of living in the greater SF bay area and the Napa Valley. Access to these museums are a treasure. This Fall Quarter, the Visual Arts Department will be going to the de Young Museum on November 14, 2010 to view "Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne, and Beyond: Post-Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musée d'Orsay" This is a rare opportunity to view works from the Musée d'Orsay in Paris while they are undergoing renovations. The caravan will be leaving Fisher Hall at 11:00 a.m. and returning by 6:00 p.m. for more information about the exhibit go to: http://deyoung.famsf.org/deyoung/exhibitions/van-gogh-gauguin-cezanne

Student Produces "Taking Haiti Home"

Lainey S. Cronk

"Taking Haiti Home," young filmmaker Tim Wolfer's first major production, tells a story from on the ground in a post-earthquake Haitian orphanage called La Maison des Enfants de Dieu.

Honors Business Program

Wolfer was in the middle of the school year as a film and television student at Pacific Union College when the earthquake hit Haiti. Wolfer posted a note on Facebook asking who would sponsor him to go to Haiti… and packed his bags. Now, people often ask him why that was his response. "I honestly don't know," he says. Wolfer had the background for such an adventure, though: He's filmed internationally for humanitarian projects, starting about two years ago when Maranatha Volunteers International, a non-profit that coordinates construction of urgently needed buildings, invited him to do film work in Mozambique. He's also done film work for the Seventh-day Adventist World Church as well as small non-profits, taking him to four countries in Africa, a couple in South America, and Bangladesh. more >>>

Photography Students Travel in 2010:


Professor of photography, Tom Turner, has led out in a bi-annual photography trip to the Yucatan Peninsula since 2001. The trip has provided photo students, faculty, staff, and alumni a chance to expand their portfolios and experiences. This past March, students visited sites including the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza, Tulum(pictured above) and ruins close to the colonial city of Merida.

Students in Jerry Dodrill's Color Photography II class took a weekend trip to the California/Oregon border on the coast. The trip yielded many wonderful photographic experiences.
