About the event

 (Lunch and Learn) “Learning From Gordon Parks” 

 Ann Dean, Freelance Photographer and Artist will talk about Gordon Parks documentation of American life and culture. Born in Fort Scott, Kansas, in 1912, he is one of the most esteemed image makers of all time. In this presentation Ann discusses the impact and inspiration found in Parks’ books: The Learning Tree, A Choice of Weapons, and Half Past Autumn. These books help illustrate Parks’ mother’s teachings centered in love, dignity, and hard work, and provide a starting point to talk about his struggles, choices, and triumphs – all great life lessons for those searching to find their way in this complicated world. Our program is brought to us by Humanities Kansas.  The Lunch and Learn is free to attend, but the sandwich wrap lunches are only available by pre-purchase for $8 each by Wed, Oct. 4.  Those planning to purchase the lunches may go online at https://www.gordonparkscenter.org/events or by phone or check by mail. or bring your own lunch and join us. Dessert and drinks also available in the FSCC Ellis Fine Arts Center. FREE to attend, except for lunch.
