ability of programs and services
and the quality of the faculty
and staff.

When Candice Kenmuir surveyed the debris left behind by Hurricane Wilma,
the Barry University photography major saw more than a reminder of the storm.
She transformed fallen leaves, roof tiles, and splintered fences into fashion and
found friends to model her couture for her senior year exhibition project.
As Kenmuir explains, “My images are intended to remind viewers not only
of Wilma’s destruction, but of the resilience of the people
who were affected by the storm.”
