Blue returns for Alumni Masters Week

Lincoln, Neb.--Last May, Anthony Blue (B.F.A. 2011) nearly missed the opportunity of a lifetime.

“I was taking a nap, woke up to check my email, and got this message asking if I could do this shoot and be there in 40 minutes,” recalled Blue, a freelance photographer and multimedia artist based in New York City. “I felt bad because I was napping and not even prepared. I had to stop at a camera place and rent some more batteries because my camera wasn’t charged.”
