LHS art becomes a part of Loveland history
Posted Tuesday, October 18, 2016
Loveland High School (LHS) invites the entire Tiger Family to a reception celebrating student artwork at the Loveland Historical Museum 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 23; LHS student-photographers and artists created artworks in response to the photography of Nancy Ford Cones, a notable photographer from the early 1900’s and Loveland native.
“The Loveland Historical Museum holds many examples of the work of Nancy Ford Cones and even artifacts that she used at the time,” said LHS Photography Teacher Jim Barrett. “The director of the museum, Jan Beller, along with LHS alum, Andrew Bateman, came to LHS and gave a wonderful presentation to the students. The students then went to the museum to view the Nancy Ford Cones exhibit and made special note of works that inspired them. Students then went back to the classroom to create their own artwork in response to the work of Cones.”
Select work from that experience will be on display along with original works by Nancy Ford Cones. The Greater Loveland Historical Museum is located at 201 Riverside Drive. The show will remain at the museum for the following week.
