A Lane Campus Tour

By Brian McCalla

Lane’s campus has a lot to offer when it comes to sight-seeing. The buildings can be like mazes to travel through but the art that’s outside is incredible to look at. From the sculptures to the murals on the sides of the buildings. The art made at Lane gives it a distinct and creative personality that can grab people’s attention.

Here is the Media Arts Equipment Checkout counter where you can rent out media equipment that you need for class.

This is the Blue Cyc Wall used for digital art and photography.
The Center for Student Engagement in the Center Building offers help for students as well as free popcorn. Yum.
Here we have the Main Art Gallery on campus where students showcase their artwork.
The Art-O-Mat is the funky machine in the Art Gallery that sits outside the Art’s Division Specialist’s offices.
The Reference counter inside the Library is a good resource for books you need to find.
This is the larger beautiful sculpture outside of the Health and Wellness department.
Here we have Cas, one of the Arts Division specialists, in her office, hard at work.
The Student Help Desk is the best place to go for students seeking technical help.
Judy Gates is the adviser for the Media Arts department. She’s a very nice lady.
Teresa Hughes is an instructor here at Lane as well as the Co-Op manager for the Media Arts division.
The Students First building is welcome to all people from around the world. Promoting an environment of ethnic unity.
Here’s a creative photo I made using toy photography. And yes, that is The Rock as a Ghostbuster.

I hope you have enjoyed this small tour. Feel free to discover Lane’s campus to see for yourself.

This is the student check out desk where we can get equipment for awesome creativity.
Found the blue Cyc wall and I’m not quite sure what its used for yet but it think its for custom backgrounds.
This is the center for student engagement.
This is the art gallery. I haven’t had time look at it yet but it is on my to do list.
This reminds me of the old vending machines where you could buy cigarettes.
Found the library on the second floor of the center building.
Not sure what this is but I’m interested in the round disk in the middle on the ground.

Student help desk
Judy Gates office. Her note says she is out of the office. She is super helpful and I’m grateful for her help with getting my classes sorted out.
This is our teachers office.
This one of my favorite things I have found so far. For some reason I keep wondering how they got the flags up there!
This was my creative shot. I feel like there is not enough attention brought to the people that keep this place going. Thank you for a job well done!

Take a little tour with me…

Lets take a little tour around campus shall we? Check out some places below.

The Equipment checkout where students can get items to help with their school work/projects.
The studio with the Blue Cyc Wall. Pretty awesome if you ask me.
Center for student engagement was pretty busy with people (Free popcorn, duh) So here is the sign!
I was told this was a main art gallery on campus… I wasn’t sure but here is a nice view of the Gallery!
Not even kidding… I thought this was an older cigarette machine. This would be the Art-O-Mat. Interesting,
Unfortunately the Reference table wasn’t okay with their picture being taken. So “Here’s your sign” – Bill Engvall
Enjoy this little cutie outside the Health and Wellness building.
Cas’s Office
The ATC… Yet another location who didn’t want their picture taken. Sad day.
Judy Gates office… I didn’t get to meet her because shes gone for the week but its good to know where she is.
Teresa’s Office. Loving the little figurines.
The Students First Building.
As for my creative shot… This beautiful little “Miniature Mushroom Garden” up in the library by the reference desk is adorable.

Well, that does it for our little tour. Hope you enjoy!

The Equipment checkout counter where Media Arts students checkout gear
The Equipment checkout

My first photo of the Equipment Checkout wasn’t hard for me to find at all because I used to work there as a tutor and a checkout person. The person in the photo is my friend Chloe and she works there now as their graphic design artist. She is very knowledgeable about the adobe programs so if you ever need help she is the one to ask. 

The Studio with the “Blue Cyc Wall”
“Blue Cyc Wall”

I decided to take a picture of the Blue Cyc Wall this way because sometimes when I space out and stare at it I get lost in the blueness and imagine that I’m just floating in an empty blue space. I know that seems strange but it can be very relaxing when taking stressful classes in that room. 

Center for Student Engagement

I have never actually been in this place in all the years I’ve been at lane community college. so it was nice to see a new cute place where you can get free popcorn. 

The main Art Gallery on campus
Art Gallery

This particular art piece struck me. The moment I walked into the art gallery it was the first thing I saw. I loved how the light shined on it and how the bronze color made it stand out from everything else in the room.

The Art-O-Mat
The Art-O-Mat

I like how the knobs looked so I wanted to exaggerate them in my photo. I also made them black and white because The Art-O-Mat kind of reminds me of the 50s style.


For this one, I just wanted to show that I found the Library so I took a cool picture of some books. It was also funny having people stare at while I was taking pictures too. 

  1. The large silver sculpture that sits outside of the Health & Wellness building
Wizard Of OZ

I liked this sculpture because of how the light made the green tiles shine like emeralds against the silver of the sculpture. It was almost like something out of Wizard of Oz. 

Ingram or Cas's office
Cas’s office

I went to Cas’s office for this one because I knew she had a cool picture of an owl. It was funny because when she saw me with my camera she instantly knew I was there for the scavenger hunt. 

SHeD (Student Help Desk) in the Center building
Student Help Desk

The people at the help desk seemed very nice and they have a super cool 3D printer. However, they did not want their picture taken so I just took a picture of their sign. 

Judy Gates’s office. She is an advisor for Media Arts
Judy Gates’s office

Judy was in a serious meeting so I just took a picture of her door. She works very hard at her job. 

Teresa’s office
Teresa’s Monsters

I love the monsters in Teresa’s office! They are so cute. The ones I took pictures of are my favorite because I think the colors look awesome, three eyes are better than none, and they look like they should be in an animated band.

The flags or other “identifier” inside of The Students First building

I liked taking this picture because the sun was hitting the flags just right to make them look beautiful. 

A creative shot of my choosing

This little baby caterpillar hitched a ride on my shoulder while I was taking a picture of the wizard of oz sculpture. It made it halfway back to my class before I noticed it was on my shoulder. 

Lane Campus Tour

Welcome to Lane’s Campus Tour! This was a fun assingment because it was a sunny day when I took the photos. I really like my creative shot and I’m glad I went on this tour.

here we are, in verse and song

Welcome one, welcome all, to LCC’s beautiful campus- I love it around here! Let’s have a walk around, shall we?

Because of the fantastic rolling chairs and the microwave, I spend the majority of my free time in the media center in building 18. This is the equipment checkout counter, where (when it’s open) multimedia students can check out a whole host of tools to help them with their classwork.

The door on the left leads to the studio with a great big ole green- or, sorry, BLUE screen. I haven’t gotten the chance to play around with the screen yet, but there’s a ton of equipment and props in there to play with, so I bet it’s a blast. Some classes meet in here too, so there’s also a long table with a bunch more of those very good chairs!

If you’re willing to walk on over into the center building, then next up is the Center for Student Engagement. It was too late in the day to get inside, and, well… I’m not actually tall enough to see in through the window. Sometimes we shorties just have to make do with what we’ve got!!!

The art gallery in building 11 is one of my favorite places on campus. Whenever I pass by, I just have to pop in and check things out! Right now, there’s an exhibit by a bunch of faculty members here at Lane. Do you ever think about how, sometimes, art just looks real comfy? It’s hard to tell when something’s meant to be a chair, or a set piece, so… I decided to refrain from relaxing here. Looks like there’d be some good reading available if I had decided to sit, though!

Just outside the art gallery sits one of the most intriguing machines I’ve ever had the opportunity to stare at and wish I had five dollars for. The Art-O-Mat comes with a little sign explaining that it holds a bunch of tiny pieces of art. Apparently, there’s paintings, music, poetry and more! Regrettably, however, it does not take debit cards.

After lamenting my loss, let us make our way back over to the center building, but a couple floors down. The reference counter in the library holds not only a lot of good info, but also a man behind the counter who, when I asked if I could take some pictures, very graciously took a pose like he was working on some very serious business at his computer. Meanwhile, I found myself enamored with the little fungus exhibit off to the side. I’m so sorry, sir- you’re an excellent model, but… shrooms…

I actually got lost trying to find the Health and Wellness Center- one of my classmates and I had to ask for directions. Regardless, the effort was well worth it. If you ever have the opportunity to stop and stand in the middle of this structure, check it out! The acoustics in there are AWESOME.

Back in building 11, I got another good pose from a faculty member. He was used to being a model in there, but he said I was the first person to take a picture of him through the plant on his desk! I can’t imagine why- it’s a real nice plant.

When I got there, I realized that I’d never actually been to the Academic Teaching Center before, and there was a lot in there for me to take pictures of! I actually did take quite a few shots in there, but… I mean, just look at this little guy. I love him. It’s impossible to beat this tiny googly-eyed titan bobblehead.

Not to extend my second apology in one post or anything, but… sorry, Judy. I didn’t know she was in her office, so I was lying on the floor, trying to get an interesting angle of her closed door, when she caught my classmates and me taking pictures and came out to greet us. She agreed to let us take some nice photos of her at work, but none of them could hold a candle to this one!

I knew Teresa was still in class when I went to take this picture, so I had no problem snapping this one through the window. Is it weird that I’m just really enjoying the different materials of the walls in here? You’ve got a pretty nice workspace, Teresa! I also really like the cute little figurines in the window.

Dearest reader, our tour is reaching its close! If you’re here from class, I hope this post is interesting enough among all the other versions of this assignment. (If you’re not here from class- what are you doing here?! That’s wild! I hope you’re having a good day!) I certainly have had fun running around campus! Being at LCC has been an incredible experience for a lot of reasons. Here, I feel comfortable to be who I am, and pursue what I love. I’m excited to keep going forward and learning- whether that be about my area of study, or about the world, or about my own self!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go find out what this is all about.


Media Arts Campus Resources: on Camera

On Week Two of MUL 101, I was assigned a scavenger hunt…

Camera in hand, I set off, excited to learn more about campus!

In Building 18, I was greeted by the friendly crew at the Equipment Checkout counter. I snapped this photo, and didn’t realize until later that two of them were having lots of fun with silly faces!

Then I headed to the Blue Cyc Wall, which has a fascinating network of lights and rigging above it.

This next photo is of the Center for Student Engagement, from which often comes the delicious wafting smell of buttery popcorn….

Having never been in Building 11 before, I enjoyed looking around its art galleries.

When I first walked into Building 11, I completed overlooked a small vintage vending machine off to the side. Turns out, it was the Art-O-Mat!

One thing I love about librarians is that they know everything. After taking this picture in the Center Building’s library, I got a question answered by this kind lady.

Despite the fact that the day was overcast and drizzling, the billowing clouds and colorful trees still set a beautiful background for the silver sculpture in front of the Health and Wellness Building.

Here is Ingram’s office in Building 11!

When I visited the SHeD Help Desk, I noticed they had a 3-D printer, so I decided to include it (and some of its creations) in the picture!

….and this is Judy Gates, my Academic Advisor!

Back in Building 18 is Teresa’s office; I love the way the high window illuminates the room.

Building 1 is a unique place, with rows of colorful flags hanging from the curved ceiling. I photographed my favorite part of the flag display.

In front of the Center Building near a sloping walkway is a metal board with hundreds of engraved names posted on it. A few years ago, my older sister pointed out the name of someone who used to teach here at LCC : Rod Metzger. He is a special family friend, and I grew up riding his horses.

– And that concludes my scavenger hunt! –

My Lane Campus Tour Experience (Wirrick-Coad)

Picture 1: The lovely equipment checkout was sadly closed as I went to take pictures of it after 2:00 P.M
They mysterious studio withe the blue cyc wall inside. Just to the left of the equipment checkout! What’s it for? We can only imagine.
The center for student engagement. Funny enough, they were closed but had left the door unlocked, so I went in and took my pictures then was promptly told to leave.
This is the statue in the main art gallery. I wanted to capture the emotions on the statue’s face and I think I’ve captured it well. It actually reminds me of Doctor Who.
The wonderful Art-o-Mat, I didn’t have any cash on me to get anything. Hopefully, I’ll have some money next time I pass it.
The reference counter. People were sitting there and didn’t want to be photographed, so sadly I just took a picture of the words and some glass.
The silver sculpture. I really enjoy the lighting that I got from this balcony across the way. I think my photo shows a lot more of the area and has some neat colors.
I believe this to be Cas’s office but I don’t know for sure. I do know that it was a treat to take a photo of the room and I think the colors turned out great.
This is my picture of the ATC (before it was switched to the SHeD) (Student Help Desk) in the assignment. I didn’t go in because people were working hard and I didn’t want to bug them.
This is Judy Gates’s office! She is really wonderful and allowed me to take multiple pictures to get just the right one.
This is our wonderful teacher’s office. She had just closed the door on me to head to class, so I decided to take this picture and follow her to the classroom.
These are the flags in the Student’s first building. I love all the diversity of flags that we have out here at LCC, not only does it make a pretty picture, it’s very welcoming to all.
This would be my “creative shot”. I really wanted to do a black and white architecture piece and find the perfect setup for the sun to come through the trees and the steps to be slightly lit. I think the photo is incredibly cool looking and has some sort of relaxed vibe to it.

The Equipment checkout counter where Media Arts students checkout gear – bldg 18

Really? More photos…

On my third day of photography, I chose to take capture this image after scheduling an equipment pick-up. Glad that we have equipment rentals that are made available to those of us living off of Ramen.   

The Studio with the “Blue Cyc Wall” – bldg 18

Got a Light?

After the equipment checkout, I walked in the studio production room. I found instructor Hughes and Stark working with students on media work. I decided to ninja on through and snap a light and ninja roll out afterwards.

Center for Student Engagement in the Center building

Rat’s POV

On the actual first day of the Scavenger Hunt, I went to the center building to find this one on the second floor. When I arrived, my eyes were glued to the ground due to shadows making patterns. So, I decided to incorporate those shadows with the door to the center.  

The main Art Gallery on campus – bldg 11

Angel among us

The main art gallery was closed the first day and I had to revisit it the next day. The art work in the exhibit were beautiful. There was a video made by two familiar faces on campus (Jan and Mel). It is an adorable video that I enjoyed, but not the focus of my camera’s eye. The bronze colored angel was the one I had to capture. Ingram got me a step ladder so I could get this shot. 

The Art-O-Mat

Where in the hell are the cigs?!

It didn’t occur to me what this item was till I found a fellow student who pointed it out to me. The ART-O-MAT was by far a favorite item since it looked like something out of the 50’s era. For this shot, I intended to make it look aged and abandoned. I love this image.

The Reference counter in the Library

Reference clerk taking a siesta at the moment

I found an abandoned Reference counter that had a certain eerie vibe. The lights have a haunting glow to them and like the yellow strip that goes off frame.

The large silver sculpture that sits outside of the Health & Wellness building 

Where is the other piece?

This was my first stop of the Scavenger Hunt. I took over a little over a dozen shots. I was able to get some nice reflections of the environment from the sculpture. Did run into class mates but we all worked in very well aside from me flipping one of my classmates off. I kid, I actually posed for them.

Ingram or Cas’s office (The Arts division Office Specialists – Building 11) 

Ingram at his gaming station in his “office”

After hooking me up with a step ladder to use for an earlier shot, I harassed Ingram for this shot. I could tell he felt awkward, so I told him to just carry about his day like if I wasn’t there. Good sport. 

The ATC (Academic Teaching Center) in the Center building 

Stop Facebooking and look busy

Figured this was actually the Academic Technology Center. It was easy to find and the staff was very welcoming to being photographed.  

Judy Gates’s office (She is your advisor for Media Arts)

Judy fixing my jacked up education plan

Caught up with Judy hard at work, although she had time to talk to me for a bit. She appreciated that I asked to take her photo fist instead of just assuming that I could.  

Teresa’s office – bldg 18

Into the mouth of madness

Teresa’s office seems to be a room emanates with an eldritch presence. Had to capture the photo before whatever was behind that door decides to pop out. Not in the mood for tentacles dragging me into the void…again.   

The flags or other “identifier” inside of The Students First building 

No shortages of flags here

Failed to realize that we had a massive collection of flags in building 1. I posted up on the second floor to capture this. I wanted the curve and the colors in the shot. While taking photos, a friend stopped by to say hello and then I bumped into another friend on the other end. Always a pleasure to greet and talk to others as I work.

A creative shot of your choosing. 

Ghost above studio

 Ah yes. For this part of the hunt, I had to find a dark and creepy location on campus. I found the look at building 17 in the old studio production room. Light and shadows worked out for my tastes. I got a nice overview of the site and the overhanging light hooked me. I took it to Adobe Lightroom and enhanced the dark and moody effect. I had another photo besides this , but this was my favorite.
