The Power family of employees was out in force at the Speed Museum for a special sneak preview of the Local Speed’s new exhibition, Dan Dry: Facing the World, which showcases the works of renowned international photographer Dan Dry.
His resume is stellar and his work evocative, but we know him as Dan, our colleague, friend and Chief Visual Officer at Power Creative.
Dan is among the most recognized and awarded photographers in America. In addition to his achievements as a photojournalist for outlets such as the Courier-Journal and National Geographic, he has enjoyed a storied career as a preeminent commercial photographer. Traveling the world, he has amassed a portfolio that is as rich and complex as the places his images document.
The exhibition showcases personal, powerful looks at some of Dan’s subjects, who include Barack Obama, Muhammad Ali and the nameless, but soulful portraits he’s captured over a career that spans the globe.
More than 100 Power employees and their guests dined on small bites from 610 Magnolia, Volare, the Anchorage Café and Corbett’s An American Place, while viewing the show. Refreshments were provided by Rye.
The exhibition, which is part of the 2013 Photo Biennial event, runs through December 7, 2013 and can viewed at the Local Speed, the Speed Art Museum’s satellite space for programming and exhibitions at 822 East Market Street.
The Speed Museum – also a Power Creative client – is currently closed and undergoing a multi-phase expansion and renovation that includes a new North and South Building, 150-seat theater, Art Park and a public piazza. “Local Speed” – the Museum’s temporary home – was established in downtown Louisville’s trendy NuLu district and features 6,000 sq. ft. of special exhibition and programming space as well as offices for museum staff.
Stop in and take a look!
