Adjunct faculty member Lily Mayfield has an exhibition of her photographs at The University of Illinois Chicago Student Center West Art Lounge from January 9 to February 9, 2012. The series is entitled “de Pavones” and reflects Lily’s interest in the rural surfing community of Pavones, Costa Rica, a small town that is home to the world’s second longest wave.
“Even with its attraction for surfers, Pavones remains a rural community, untouched by the typical chain hotels and restaurants you might expect to find in a tourist-driven Costa Rican town with views of the Pacific Ocean” says Lily. “My intention is to create a portrait of Pavones by photographing the residents, the many scenic spaces, and the local businesses.”
