Gordon Parks' Visions: What Do You See?

Gordon Parks' Visions: What Do You See? is an Arts Partners program developed in 2015 with funding from the Ulrich Museum of Art.

What did Gordon Parks see when he took his photographs? Students will be mesmerized by the storytelling of The Griots as they share stories told in Gordon Parks' photographs. Recreating American life during the pre-Civil Rights era, this interactive and engaging storytelling group will have your students contemplating civil rights, justice, creativity, originality, devotion, and why Gordon Parks' legacy lives into the 21st century.

Students will learn about respected artist, author, and native Kansan Gordon Parks. While experiencing history and social studies topics related to Gordon Parks, students will be inspired to think critically about their own lives and experiences.
