IM Students at Panopticon Gallery for the 2023 Student Show reception

The PRC recognizes your students as a creative force influencing the future of visual art. We invite schools and institutions to join the PRC at our Institutional Membership level to supplement their creative education. The PRC Student/Institutional membership is a one-year membership that renews annually in September that gives educational institutions access to all PRC programs: lectures with world-renowned photographers, artists, curators and critics; juried and unjuried exhibitions; portfolio review, art-share programs; workshops; and special members-only events. Everyone at your institution, students, faculty and staff, receive all the PRC member benefits—an exceptional learning experience at an exceptional value!

Since 1976, the PRC has been a gathering place for all photographers, from fine art to commercial to documentary and video. Our community includes artists, collectors, curators, gallerists, educators, students, and photography enthusiasts. The PRC is a hub of exploration and creativity that has grown to become one of the premier cultural institutions in New England.

Partner with the PRC and expand your creativity! Join today!
