October 24, 2005 -- A former school superintendent has found his muse in photography, which will be showcased at an upcoming exhibition.

Collin County Community College District (Collin) will host photography by student Barry Schoenholz in "The Music of Nature/The Nature of Music" Monday, Nov. 7-Friday, Nov. 18, at the Spring Creek Campus Atrium. The campus is located at 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano. Admission is free and open to the public.

"The Music of Nature/The Nature of Music" is a conglomeration of Schoenholz's work from photographing the Allen Philharmonic Symphony for two years and documenting a trip to Yellowstone National Park.

Schoenholz said inspiration hit him as he listened to the symphony's music and recognized a connection to nature. He found the correlation after visiting Yellowstone.

A reception for Schoenholz's exhibition is scheduled for 2 p.m., Monday, Nov. 7, in the Spring Creek Campus Atrium.

Schoenholz served as a school superintendent for 20 years in New York and Michigan. In retirement from public education, he pursued an interest in photography, in which he will earn an associate of arts degree in December.

Spring Creek Campus' hours of operation are Monday-Friday, 6 a.m.-11 p.m.; Saturday, 7 a.m.-11 p.m.; and Sunday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.

For more information, call Schoenholz at 972.741.5616.
