Description
View across the Bowdoin Quadrangle toward the east side of the Walker Art Building. From July 28, 2015 through July 30, 2015 Abelardo Morell '71 used the Rotunda to create a camera obscura image. To completely darken the Rotunda the oculus and doors were covered in plastic. A small opening in the plastic over the east door served as the lens for the camera obscura image of the Bowdoin Quadrangle, which appeared on the west wall, temporarily painted white for this project. A digital camera was set up to capture the image. Shown here are various members of the Museum staff as they were positioned on the Quadrangle and the building's entrance steps to become part of the camera obscura image. The final photograph has been given to the Museum and was on view during Homecoming Weekend (October 15-18, 2015), during which Bowdoin's fifteenth president, Clayton S. Rose, was inaugurated. The photograph was also available for purchase as a limited edition, signed and dated print. The proceeds from the sale will go to a fund at the Museum, named for Morell and his wife Lisa McElaney '77, to support photographic exhibitions, programs, and the acquisition of work by promising young photographers.
