WonderLab’s First Friday Evening Focus is on Photography

Professional  photographers will demonstrate traditional and digital photography techniques during First Friday Evening Science of Art: Smile! Cameras on Friday, July 6, from 5:00 pm – 8:30 pm at the WonderLab Museum of Science, Health, and Technology in Bloomington. Visitors to the museum will get to watch and talk with Michael Finger as he  develops paper prints from negatives using traditional chemical processes, as well as watch and talk with James  Kellar as he shows how computer software is used to enhance  digital photos. Related hands-on visitor activities will highlight historical and modern photographic techniques. These include making a mini  pinhole viewer, creating a print using chemically-treated paper and light from the Sun, and using computer software to  alter a raw digital photo before printing it to take home.

WonderLab’s First Friday Evening Science of Art series offers adults and children the opportunity to explore the  connections between art and science. General admission for visitors on  Friday night is discounted to $3.50 per person. Activities are recommended for all ages and are included with admission. A small-plate  meal of a turkey or cheese wrap, with a serving of crisp baby carrots  and half a banana, prepared by Bloomingfoods Deli will be available to  purchase on-site ($2.50) at the museum. WonderLab is an award-winning science museum located  at 308 West Fourth Street on the B-Line Trail in the heart of the  downtown  Bloomington Entertainment and Arts District (BEAD). For more information, call 812-337-1337 ext. 25 or go online to or  WonderLab’s Facebook page.

Sponsors: F. Rudolf Turner, with additional grant support from the  BEAD Arts Partner Grant Program and the City of Bloomington Arts  Commission.
