Emily Dalton is a Visual Arts major with a concentration in Photography and an Art History minor studying at the Mason Gross School of the Arts.
Emily has always loved art, so she decided during her Sophomore year that she wanted to to be a Visual Arts major and pursue a concentration in Photography. She felt most confident with that concentration because it allows her to express herself through that medium.
“I like my major because I am able to turn what was once a hobby into a career/lifestyle,” she discloses.
She appreciates the fact that her professors give her honest, valuable insight of how it is like to be an artist and make art for a living.
“I’ve had the chance to work with professors who have made a great impact in the art world, which is something not many 21 year olds get to say,” she explains.
She is currently the Art Director for an on-campus publication called The Rutgers Review and an event photographer for the Rutgers Student life Media Team.
After graduation she plans on teaching in a classroom setting or a museum.
“Working a job like that would allow me to practice art in a professional environment and also allow me to work independently on my work.”
