Art at the Club with Jim Brown
IUPUI Univeristy Club
Thursday, October 18, 2018, 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. EDT
IUPUI University Club
For the fall semester, the University Club has a new art installation featuring photographs by Jim Brown from his ventures in scouting. Dr. Brown, IUPUI professor emeritus of journalism and executive associate dean emeritus of journalism, learned photography from his dad. He joined Boy Scout Troop 4 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri at 11 years old, and today is an Eagle Scout and a Silver Beaver; the highest award for a volunteer in the Crossroads of America Council. He earned the Photography Merit Badge in 1959 and rewrote the corresponding book 2 years ago.
A special event to meet the photographer is scheduled for October 18, 2018. Dr. Brown will talk about his approach to photographing people and wildlife in the context of the changes in the scouting program over his lifetime.
