Please note: there is no fee for CE students -- you just need to identify yourself as such at check-in (Gershman Y) so that you can get a wristband.


Continuing Education supports the mission of the University by facilitating access to innovative educational opportunities and resources for a diverse population of adult learners including enrichment courses and certificate programs designed to anticipate and meet the changing professional, academic, and lifelong learning needs of individuals in the greater Philadelphia region.  

The selection of work on view was made by Digital Photography and Graphic Design Certificate students as well as students in enrichment courses such as Large Scale Paper Collage, Watercolor Workshop, Painting in the Abstract, Character Design, and others during the 2017-2018 academic year.

Window into Pop's World by Sara Manzano-Diaz

Pop Looking Out the Window

Digital Photo Certificate Capstone Exhibition


Digital Photography Certificate Capstone Exhibition August 31 - September 28, 2018 Reception: Wednesday, September 5, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Sara Manzano-Díaz is an attorney, photographer, and UArts Digital Photography Certificate candidate whose current project focuses on personal narrative and documentary portraiture.

Window into Pop’s World is a collection of intimate photographs depicting a 97-year-old man—the artist’s father-in-law—and his everyday experiences as he transitions into widowhood after 67 years of marriage. Dreamlike images depict time passing, witnessed through an attentive lens. Universal themes of memory, cycles, rememberance, and aging arise through penetrating photographs of one man’s daily life.

Manzano-Díaz has spent her life advocating on behalf of working class families, veterans, women, and girls. She strives to continue her advocacy by using photography as a tool for visual storytelling and social impact. Manzano-Díaz aims to empower and uplift individuals by documenting their lives and experiences. She lives and works in Philadelphia.

Exhibition is free and open to the public.
