Professor Rick Dingus is retiring after serving as professor in Photography since 1982. He has had a very successful career during his years at Tech. Throughout the years he has received high honors and awards for his photography. We are honored to have worked with Professor Dingus and appreciate his contribution to the classroom, inspiring students, and working with colleagues to transform the School in meeting its mission and goals.
His retrospective exhibition, Changing Places, The Photographic Artifacts is on display at the Museum Texas Tech University until June 12, 2016.
During the opening festivities for Rick’s exhibit at the Museum of TTU, Robin Germany, professor of photography and Rick’s colleague in the Photography area, and Brianna Burnett, President of the Medici Circle support group of the School of Art and 2008 MFA alumna of the photo program, announced an initiative to raise funds for a RICK DINGUS FELLOWSHIP ENDOWMENT. A goal of $22,500 has been set for the endowment. Brianna Burnett, speaking on behalf of the Medici Circle, announced that the Medici Circle would match donations to this scholarship initiative “dollar for dollar” up to $11,250, effectively cutting the campaign in half!
