Additional OPPORTUNITY for PHOTOGRAPHERS
Palm Beach County’s Department of Airports and Art in Public Places program are partnering with the County’s Library System to bring art, and the experience of being a photographer, to life though the Library’s Book Life Series. In its second year, the series features eight books that look at different facets of our identity and how it’s shaped by our culture, gender, health, family, careers and the tensions that arise when society doesn’t view us in the same light. The featured book for the months of September and October is “Still Life with Bread Crumbs” by Anna Quindlen, about a photographer’s journey to discover that life is more than what she sees through the camera lens.
All photographers accepted into the “Art at the Airport” exhibition are invited to present on a panel discussion entitled the “Through the Camera Lens” which will occur September 17, 2:00pm at the Glades Road Library Branch in Boca Raton. Photographers who present on the panel will receive a small honorarium.
