Institutional Membership

Inspiring Your Students to Explore, Interpret, and Celebrate Photography!

Alex Uncapher

We welcome colleges and universities committed to promoting a broader understanding of the visual and photographic arts as working “partners” through our Institutional Membership Program.

The PRC is a nexus for networking opportunities for artists of all levels. “Advancing the Art and the Artists” is the core of what we do. The PRC’s programs rely on established relationships with our photographic community of fine-art, documentary and commercial photographers, gallerists, curators, collectors, enthusiasts, students and educators.

Institutional Membership at the PRC is an exceptional value.

When you become a member, your school’s modest investment entitles every student enrolled at your institution and your Faculty and Staff to exceptional opportunities and extensive benefits for an entire year.

Through interaction with renowned photographers, critics, and curators in the form of lectures, workshops and exhibitions – to unlimited gallery and event access – we offer diverse avenues for student engagement. And the PRC is continually expanding visibility for our Institutional Member students and faculty. We recognize your students are the creative force influencing the visual art of the future.

Won’t you partner with the PRC by becoming an institutional member today? Together we can open pathways for your students to realize their potential.
