In recognition of the Minnesota Marine Art Museum (MMAM) exhibition Photography by Cameron Glendenning: The Deadliest Catch, the Museum will be bringing Glendenning to Winona for two public programs.
Cameron Glendenning, Culver City, CA, is a 3-time Emmy Award winning cinematographer for his work on projects including the Discovery Channel’s hit television show Deadliest Catch. He is a leader among a new generation of filmmakers that work in every format of still and motion pictures, seamlessly navigating commercial and artistic projects.
On Thursday, March 21st, from 6-7pm, Glendenning will present a free artist talk at the MMAM. During the program, Glendenning will engage the audience with his many stories, his many dramatic projects and assignments, and his artworks at the MMAM – which make up his first major U.S. art exhibition in the United States. No sign up is necessary for this program.
Glendenning will also help present a program for kids and families. In recognition of Youth Art Month (March), Glendenning will be offering a free Family Storytelling program on Saturday, March 23rd, from 10-11am. Museum Educator Heather Casper and the artist will read and tell stories about life on the high seas and traveling to faraway places. All ages are welcome, but stories and projects will be geared to children ages 5 and older. Interested parents are asked to call 507-474-6626 to sign up as space is limited.
The artist talk is free thanks to the generous support of Ernest and Sally Micek in memory of W.B. “Bill” Gautsch. Family Storytelling with Cameron Glendenning is funded by Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council through the Minnesota arts and cultural heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota legislature with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
