The Power of Observation
A Photographic Journey with Julius Friedman

Saturday, August 27, 2016 from 9:00am – 12:00pm


The Frazier History Museum is thrilled to offer K – 12 educators a unique opportunity to explore photography as an art form, teaching tool and a path for self-reflection, with world-class artist and Kentuckian, Julius Friedman.  Teachers will contemplate observation and perspective as important, life-long skills through interactive activities with the Frazier’s temporary exhibit Julius Friedman: Fifty Year Retrospective.   

Afterwards they will create their OWN photographs, using as their subject matter the Frazier Museum and downtown Louisville.  A group discussion with Julius will follow, allowing participants to share their photography.  

Teachers MUST BRING their own phone/camera and related cords

COST: FREE to professional educators - The $15 fee for this program has been provided by a grant through the Frazier Museum’s “Bridge to History” Project generously funded by Louisville Metro Government and the UPS Foundation.
