The Last Lecture

2017 Speaker

Kevin Salemme
Media Center Director

On November 14th at 7:30 p.m, Kevin Salemme will be standing in front of an audience of students, faculty, and staff to deliver the speech he would want to give if this were his “last lecture” ever. 

Kevin Salemme started his college career as an Electrical Engineering major at Merrimack in the Fall of 1979, but soon decided to follow his heart and become a photographer. He transferred to the Art Institute of Boston and graduated with the class of 1982. Working as a commercial photographer around Boston gave way to becoming the Media Director at Merrimack in the fall of 1984. During his time at Merrimack he completed his BFA, and BA, and finished his MLA at Harvard University. As an artist, his career began in an exhibit at the Pittsfield Museum, and continued in Europe with solo exhibitions in France and Switzerland. Kevin has been at Merrimack since the fall of 1984, and has been teaching photography for over 20 years.
