During October, AETN was proud to go beyond the broadcast of “Pedro E. Guerrero: A Photographer’s Journey” with events for architecture lovers of all ages. From a student workshop in North Little Rock to a special screening and panel discussion with Architecture & Design Network, it’s been a banner month made possible by a grant from WNET!
North Little Rock School District middle school students dove into the worlds of photography and architecture Saturday, Oct. 3, at the AETN/WNET Architectural Photography Workshop held at the North Little Rock History Commission.
The 17 students joined us and our partners from the Blue-Eyed Knocker Photography Community, Preserve Arkansas and the Argenta Art Connection for a full day, starting with an introduction to Pedro E. Guerrero and his work!
After watching the film, everyone got a compact education in architectural photography, online social photography platforms, North Little Rock history and using their brand new cameras, Nikon Cool Pix.
On Tuesday, Oct. 20, an opening reception featured a special exhibition of student artwork, followed by a screening of “American Masters — Pedro E. Guerrero: A Photographer’s Journey.”
As part of the Architecture & Design Network Lecture Series at the Arkansas Arts Center, Ethel Goodstein-Murphree, associate dean of the University of Arkansas Fay Jones School of Architecture + Design; Brian Lang, chief curator of the Arkansas Arts Center; and Tim Hursley, architectural photographer, joined for the film and accompanying panel discussion. It was an outstanding night with standing room only!
