Fine Arts Featured Story
Forty-four members of the Boston College class of 2014 were awarded Fine Arts degrees on May 19 – 22 in Art History, 12 in Film Studies, and ten in Studio Art. Fifteen Fine Arts graduates received Latin honors of cum laude, magna cum laude, or summa cum laude, and three art history majors were initiated into Phi Beta Kappa – the most ever from the Fine Arts Department.

Daniel Zawodny '14 has known since before starting college that he wanted to combine his interest in photography and film with his ambition to help "bring the world together." In this first-person account, the Film Studies major describes how his courses and relationships with his instructors and peers at BC have prepared and supported him in this endeavor. Traveling to Guatemala last summer with Actuality Media, a program for documentary filmmaking students, Danny was able to put his skills and knowledge to work in order to share with a greater public the story of a Mayan fishermen's cooperative dedicated to preserving the health of Lake Atitlan and their native culture.
