Rebecca Miller is an Associate Professor of Art & Art History. Prior to teaching at Drury, Rebecca was a Visiting Lecturer in photography and drawing at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. She moved to Springfield in 2000 and currently teaches all levels of silver based photography, alternative photographic processes, digital photography, commercial photography and the history of photography.
The combination of photography and other media has always intrigued Rebecca. She finds it to be a challenge to successfully combine photography with direct media, such as painting and drawing, concluding with a cohesive product. It has been this challenge that leads to her current work, which is a combination of photography, etching, painting, and drawing. In addition to her mixed media photographic works, Rebecca is also interested in documentary photography, especially in relation to the renovation and reuse of architectural structures. She completed a series of large format color and black and white photographs of the renovation of the new Pool Art Center, which previously was a Coca-Cola bottling factory. Her current documentary project focuses on the transformation of the eight acres of the Tindle Mills Feed Company, that was donated to Drury University, which will become a part of the campus.
