This award-winning photograph, titled “Shorty,” by Milligan College senior Mickey Brown is included in Brown’s exhibit, March 24-April 5, at the Milligan Art Gallery.

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (March 13, 2013) — “A Circus of Sorts,” a photography and art exhibit by Milligan College senior Mickey Brown, opens Sunday, March 24, from 2 to 4 p.m., in the Milligan Art Gallery, located in the lower level of Derthick Hall.

The exhibit will remain open through April 5. The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.

“My exhibit will include photographs, designs, paintings and drawings that all relate to a sort of circus,” said Brown, a fine arts major from Kingsport, Tenn.

While a student at Milligan, Brown has earned several accolades for his photography.

In September 2012, Brown exhibited his work in a research symposium sponsored by the Appalachian College Association and University of North Carolina at Asheville. His exhibition was titled “Stories of the Served: A Photographic Account of Those Helped by Appalachia Service Project.”

Last month, Brown was awarded a gold ADDY at the annual American Advertising Federation Northeast Tennessee awards banquet and was named student “Best of Show” for a photograph titled “Shorty.” He also earned a silver ADDY for his publication cover design.

Brown’s ADDY-winning photograph will be on display at the “A Circus of Sorts” exhibit.
