Faces of Hastings

Hastings College students create ‘Faces of Hastings’ exhibit.

From communication studies to publishing to graphic design, students and faculty from several departments at Hastings College worked together to create a “Faces of Hastings” exhibit that aims to build cultural bridges across the community.

The exhibition, which includes large posters featuring short stories about people from the Hastings area, an interactive feature that allows guests to become part of the exhibit.

35 Hastings College students from three different classes conducted a series of oral history interviews with culturally diverse Hastings residents. After transcribing the interviews, students created stories depicting people’s lives in Hastings.

A portion of the stories, including translations done by advanced Spanish students at the College, and photographs of the interviewees, were used by Hastings College design students to create a high-quality poster exhibit.

An interactive portion of the exhibit allows guests to photograph themselves with a Polaroid and then post the photos with brief stories about their lives, adding even more diversity to the “Faces of Hastings.”

Hastings College is a private, four-year institution located in Hastings, Nebraska, that focuses on student academic and extracurricular achievement. Hastings College has been named among “Great Schools, Great Prices” by U.S. News & World Report and a “Best in the Midwest” by The Princeton Review. For more, go to hastings.edu.
