Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- The Columbia Museum of Art recently displayed photographs of the Congaree National Park, taken by White Knoll high school seniors. That exhibit has now been transferred to Senator Lindsay Graham's Washington, DC office, to be featured for the next year.

Photography students at White Knoll completed the project as their senior assignment in an art class conducted by Josh Keiper.

During the month of August, the students work was displayed in the CMA Interactive Education Gallery. Through an annual partnership with Senator Graham's office, the students work will be on view in his office for the next year.

"I'm honored to be a part of this ongoing effort to bring a little bit of South Carolina to Washington," U.S. Senator, Lindsey Graham, said.

"The White Knoll High School students have done a remarkable job capturing the unique beauty of South Carolina's Congaree National Park. I couldn't be more proud and appreciative of their time and service. Thanks to Karen Brosius and Kerry Kuhlkin-Hornsby of the Columbia Museum of Art for their work in making this such a success."

"The students will never forget this opportunity," Museum Executive Director, Karen Brosius, said. "Josh Keiper should be commended for his commitment and creativity in planning and promoting this project."

The mission of the Interactive Education Gallery at the CMA is to foster the creation, appreciation, understanding and enjoyment of the visual arts through student exhibitions and in interactive art environment.
