ART SPEAKS: VOICES FROM THE COMMUNITY presents
with guest speaker Skip Westphal
on THURSDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2018 5-6:30PM
Art Speaks is a lecture series is designed to engage the community—especially young and emerging artists—by presenting a wide array of guest speakers and professional photographers to the public.
Through a blend of artist talks, demonstrations, slideshows and even workshops, this program offers audiences the opportunity to learn about—and discuss in detail—aspects of photography, image-making and potential career opportunities.
Not only is this a supportive learning experience, but also a platform to recognize and celebrate the incredible talent in our local community.
Skip Westphal, a retired digital imaging and photo technician, spent nearly 18 years working in the photo lab at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland.
Along with the rest of the scientific staff, he helped process and produce imaging from the Hubble Space Telescope for the Space Telescope Science Institute and NASA. He will recount his experiences and share his knowledge about the early years of the Hubble Space Telescope, as well as his duties in preparing images for recording on 35mm and 4x5 inch films, or for large format printing for scientific conferences and public outreach initiatives.
