Industry Seminar: "Celebrating and Supporting the Arts through Photography"

with Brian Smith, Sponsored by Sony Electronics

Thursday, March 10 - 10:30AM to 11:45AM
Capitol South

Working with The Creative Coalition and with the support of Sony, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Brian Smith has photographed over 200 celebrities for Art & Soul including Anne Hathaway, Samuel L Jackson, Spike Lee, Adrian Grenier, Tony Bennett, Kelsey Grammer, Taye Diggs, Tim Daly and Dana Delaney. The project combines Smith portraits of celebrities with their hand-written testimonials about the importance of the arts and arts. Smith will discuss how the project is being used to generate support for funding for the arts and arts education. Art & Soul was previewed in an exhibit at the Library on Congress in May 2010 and will be published by Hachette Book Group in October 2011.
