The Frist Center offers Nashville area educators a unique opportunity in the fall. Registration is now open for a full-day workshop on September 22 that focuses on the groundbreaking photography of Carrie Mae Weems. The program gives local teachers the chance for hands-on art activities and discussion. The highlight of the event will be a keynote lecture by Weems herself.
The photographer will reflect on major themes in her work, including the observance of problems in society. Weems’ work illuminates sexism, racism and classism in culture, and lessons from her art can be applied to many school subjects. The workshops are open to educators of all subjects and grade levels, K-12, at the cost of $20 for members and $25 for non-members. The registration fee includes all materials, teacher resources, gallery admission, parking, breakfast, and lunch.
