Bernheim is proud to participate in the 2017 Louisville Photo Biennial with FOTO FOREST: Photographic Selections by Bernheim Artists in Residence. For more than three decades, the Artist in Residence program has attracted artists from around the world who seek to use Bernheim as their inspiration and to explore ideas that reinforce Bernheim’s mission of connecting people with nature.
Photography as an artistic medium has a long-standing history in the Artist in Residence program at Bernheim. But as the photographic medium has changed over the years, so has artistic interpretation of the landscape changed with photography. FOTO FOREST is an exhibition that celebrates unique and diverse interpretations of the Bernheim landscape.
Visitors can enjoy photographs from artists Eileen Neff, Jimmy Fike, Nori Hall and Christopher Burkett, as well as highlights from Bernheim’s 2017 Artists in Residence. The exhibition is located in Bernheim’s Education Center and will be on display from October 1st through December 29th, 2017.
Throughout October, the Education Center is open daily from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Beginning November 1, the Education Center will be open 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. on weekends.
This exhibit is free of charge. The $5 weekend environmental impact fee still applies at the gate for non-members.
The Louisville Photo Biennial is a regional festival occurring in over 60 venues in Louisville, Lexington and Southern Indiana, celebrating artistic excellence in this rich and diverse medium. The Photo Biennial represents a cooperative effort among local museums, galleries, universities and other public venues to give viewers the opportunity to learn about and to appreciate photography.
