Photography of Alum Steve Brandon to Benefit the MSU Art Gallery

STARKVILLE, Miss. (Press Release) — “Wonders of Nature,” a photography exhibit by Mississippi State alumnus Steve Brandon of Chattanooga, Tenn., now is being featured in the university’s Colvard Student Union Art Gallery.

Since retiring in 2002, he and wife Patsy Fowlkes have traveled the world, photographing wildlife and speaking about wildlife conservation. Both graduated from MSU in the early 1970s and have become noted wildlife photographers.

Free and open to all, the exhibit runs through May 29 in the second-floor gallery, with a reception to be held 5-7 p.m. April 22 at the location.
