Haverford’s Visual Culture, Arts, and Media (VCAM) facility is a 24/7 creative hub for students, faculty, staff, and the wider community.
VCAM houses the College’s Interdisciplinary Minor in Visual Studies, the Haverford Innovations Program, a Maker Arts Space, and the John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities.
At the end of April, the first floor of Haverford College’s VCAM building transformed into a runway, as 48 student models walked in the biggest fashion show the college has ever seen.
The Hurford Center-sponsored event at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute featured an appearance by the film’s composer, Robert Aiki Aubery Lowe.
