Jette Via

Via is a former student (2001) who went on to receive an Arts Education credential from the University of California Irvine (2004) and an MFA from Claremont Graduate School (2014). 

Her thesis exhibition, “Where There’s Smoke, There’s Via,” was a combination of her interests in photography, installation, and performance and asked questions about social media, our online persona, and how we share information.
