The Maverick Lens is an annual photo exhibit designed to reflect the diversity of learning, living and working at UT Arlington. Each year The Maverick Lens series will announce a theme and solicit photographs from students, staff and faculty for a framed art exhibit to be held at the Central Library. Submissions will be juried by a committee of staff, faculty and students. Photos are submitted through the Flickr group. See HERE for an example submission. Full submission guidelines can be found at Submission Guidelines PDF.
While the exhibit theme will vary from year to year, its basic function will remain the same: to teach the UT Arlington community about different facets of campus life and experience, and to celebrate the creativity of the UT Arlington photographers whose work is selected for display.
Sponsored by the UT Arlington Library and the Department of Modern Languages, The Maverick Lens grew out of a desire to capitalize on the successes of previous photography exhibits held at the Central Library in recent years.
The Maverick Lens is more than the exploration of a given topic. It is an invitation to create a dialogue across academic units and different groups on campus about life at UT Arlington, and to celebrate student creativity and engagement.
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the UT Arlington Library the inaugural theme of The Maverick Lens is Views from the Library. We invite all photographers of the UT Arlington community to interpret and submit work, in any photographic media, on this theme. Entrees may construe the theme broadly, but must feature the Library in an identifiable way. Possible angles include but are not limited to: architectural space and design, student use of the library, student interaction in and around the library, uses of library materials, lesser known parts of the library, etc.
