‘Evolving Inspiration: The Art And Design Of Julius Friedman’

It’s fitting that the work of the late Julius Friedman is on display during the Louisville Photo Biennial. The artist/designer, who died in 2017, created photography as well as posters, sculpture and books. Last year, Friedman’s sister, Carol Abrams, donated a portion of his work from his 50-year career to The Filson. The result is this exhibition of black and white photography, advertising posters, books and “Rockopolis” sculpture.
