SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — Four upstate New York are teaming up for an innovative program that will exhibit hundreds of photographs simultaneously in museums on each campus.

Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs is leading the project that also includes Colgate University in Hamilton, the University at Albany and Hamilton College in Clinton.

Staff and faculty members at all four colleges will be involved in an exhibition titled "This Place," featuring more than 600 images by 12 international photographers who have chronicled life in the contested places in Israel and the West Bank. The exhibit, scheduled to open in the spring of 2018, will serve as an on-campus teaching and learning program for undergraduates.

The program is funded by a $222,000 grant from the New York City-based Teagle Foundation.
