Meredith Associate Professor of Art Shannon Johnstone will be featured on ABC's World News with Diane Sawyer tonight, December 4, 2013, at 6:30 p.m. Johnstone uses art to bring attention to shelter dogs through her Landfill Dogs photography project. World News with Diane Sawyer airs locally on WTVD 11.
Johnstone has been a member of Meredith’s faculty since 2002. She is on sabbatical this semester to focus on her Landfill Dogs project. In addition to her own project, she has also taught a Meredith summer class called “Who Let the Dogs Out?” with a similar focus. Students in the six-week course learn photography skills that they use to highlight animals at the Wake County Animal Center, which receives approximately 17,000 surrendered animals annually. The primary goal of the class is to help these animals find permanent homes.
