The View from Here 2024

Free admission

This exhibition highlights the work of nine student-photographers from Greater New Haven who participated in “The View from Here: Accessing Art through Photography,” in fall 2023 and winter 2024. Now in its third year, the program is an opportunity for local young people to learn about the history, materials, and practice of photography through direct engagement with curators, faculty, museum staff, and photography professionals.

In addition to this online presentation, the students’ work is on view in the High Street windows of the museum and in the Conference Center, Yale West Campus, from April 30 through July 31, 2024. A complementary installation at the Yale Schwarzman Center from May 8 through November 22, 2024, will amplify the reach of this ongoing initiative by showcasing images from all participants in the program since 2021.
