Teachers hear Mr. Fielder at Glenbow Museum

June 14, 2011

Ms. Grimm, Ms. Hardacre and Mr. Vaast went to the Glenbow to hear Mr. Jerry Fielder, the Director and Curator of the Karsh Estate speak to a small group of enthusiasts who wanted to hear about Yousuf Karsh's life. We did not realize going into the talk that Mr. Fielder had worked with Yousuf for over 30 years and considered him a dear friend. We were in for a rare treat indeed.

We also received a prize for winning the youth submission for the Heroes Project Contest put on by the Glenbow Museum and the Alberta College of Art and Design (ACAD). That was thrilling! Our project won!

Here are some pictures of the event and of us with our work presented in the Glenbow Museum and of us with Mr. Fielder AND our work which honours Karsh's legacy.
