LOUISVILLE, Ky., Sept. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ChromaLuxe, the global leader in dye-sublimation metal prints, announced today that it will be a sponsor of the 2017 Louisville Photo Biennial. The Biennial will be held from September 22, 2017 to November 11, 2017 throughout the Louisville Metro region and surrounding communities including Southern Indiana, Frankfort, Bardstown, and Lexington.
Now in its 10th year, the Biennial will feature more than 50 photography exhibitions – spanning traditional to contemporary, local to global work – that will be shown at museums, galleries, universities, and cultural institutions. The Louisville Photo Biennial also presents accompanying workshops, public lectures and panel discussions to stimulate learning and reinforce visual literacy. The goal is to educate via meaningful dialogue and bridge understanding in a diverse world through this dynamic medium.
"As a frequent sponsor and host of photo exhibitions and events across the globe, ChromaLuxe is proud to take a leadership role in celebrating photography in our hometown of Louisville, Kentucky," said Steve Flores, ChromaLuxe Global Brand Manager. "It is great to see our regional galleries, museums, universities, and more come together to recognize and celebrate fine art photography."
This year's Biennial is dedicated to the memory of Louisville photographer Julius Friedman who passed away on July 16 of this year. Friedman was a cornerstone of the Louisville arts community and was an internationally famous designer, photographer, artist, book maker, gallery owner and timeless contributor to local arts organizations and artists. His work and life brought joy and visual richness to this community, and he always found ways to engage a variety of audiences.
