FOTO FORWARD | YOUTH PROGRAM 2013: GALLERY IMMERSION
A behind the scenes training for young artists and aspiring arts professionals.
What goes into putting on a professional art exhibition? After the art is made, the next steps determine whether the exhibition is successful and well received. You’ll learn what goes on behind the scenes in this one-of-a-kind gallery immersion program. There is no charge to participate in this program.
The Center will be accepting six students into this program. We are looking for dedicated students that want to pursue art-making, careers in the arts, and young photographers wanting to learn about the behind the scenes gallery activity. Due to the limited amount of students allowed, this is a highly competitive program.
This program will run concurrently with the Center’s annual Center Forward exhibition, juried by the Executive Director, Hamidah Glasgow. Students will gain experience with this exhibition from the professionals who coordinate The Center’s international photography exhibitions. Students will be able to learn, ask questions and participate in the gallery operations. All students are expected to be present at orientation for the art handling training and may not miss more than one session in the program.
