Gordon Parks Museum open during annual celebration


Fort Scott, KS Staffers are moving most of the Gordon Parks Museum’s artifact collections into the meeting
room and lobby area of the Danny and Willa Ellis Family Fine Arts Center to accommodate public viewing
during the annual celebration Oct. 68 at Fort Scott Community College.

Continued supplychain issues delaying the repair of the museum’s airconditioning unit are the cause for the
change, said museum director Kirk Sharp.

“The date when repairs can be completed is still unknown at this time,” said Sharp. “We want to thank
everyone for their support and patience.”

Museum visits and tours can be scheduled for a later date by calling (620) 2232700, ext. 5850, or by sending

Gordon Parks Museum Will Host 2024 Kansas Museums Assoc. Conference in 2024

Kirk Sharp is the director of the Gordon Parks Museum on the campus of Fort Scott Community College. Submitted photo

The Gordon Parks Museum is pleased to announce that Fort Scott, KS will be the host site for the 2024 Kansas Museums Association Conference. The Gordon Parks Museum will serve as the Member Host Organization and both The Fort Scott National Historic Site and The Lowell Milken Center will also serve as Additional Hosts.

 

Our host planning committee put together a competitive bid proposal. This three-day annual conference will attract 125-150 museum professionals from around the state of Kansas. The conference will provide breakout sessions and workshops with a wide range of topics and the latest trends in museums and preservation.

 

Jackson Tough, City of Fort Scott, Director of Public Relations & Tourism said, “The city of Fort Scott is thrilled that the Kansas Museums Association Conference chose our community. Being a part of that effort, I know a lot of groundwork was put forth by Kirk Sharp and the presentation committee. They worked on crafting a thorough proposal for several months (and wrote many drafts) that illustrate the many positive attributes that Fort Scott is known for. An event like the Kansas Museums Association Conference is a great opportunity to showcase our community.”

 

The conference breakout sessions will use several venues in Fort Scott such as: The Gordon Parks Museum, Ellis Fine Arts Center, and The River Room. Conference attendees will also go on tours and site visits at some of the attractions in the community to include the Fort Scott National Historic Site, Lowell Milken Center and many others. The tentative dates for the 3-day conference will be the first or second week of November in 2024.

 

Kirk Sharp, Director of the Gordon Parks Museum said, “We are very excited about this great opportunity to bring such large group of museum professionals from across the state to our town to not only show what we have to offer, but for them to shop, dine, stay and support our museums and other attractions in our community.”

 

For 53 years, the KMA Annual Conference has served as a focal point for its member institutions that range from Stanton County Museum in Johnson, Kansas to the Kansas Museum of History in Topeka. Officially formed in spring 1969 when its first organizational meeting was held in Abilene. The Kansas Museums Association offers numerous networking and professional development gatherings and opportunities across the state each year. The KMA is headquartered in Wichita.

The public is invited to the kickoff for this project on Monday, April 25, at the Ellis Fine Arts Center theater on the Fort Scott Community College campus at 10 a.m.

There will be a presentation by Robin Hickman Winfield, the great niece of Gordon Parks, and Eli Reed, an award-winning photographer, photojournalist, author, and the 2021 Choice of Weapons Award Recipient.

The Gordon Parks Museum will host a Photography Meet & Greet Seminar on Wednesday, April 27
at 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Come meet and greet Veretta Cobler, professional photographer, who will give a
presentation on working with film and digital photography.

Veretta has moved back home to Fort Scott after over four decades of living in New York City where she
maintained her fullyequipped commercial photography studio. Throughout her career she transitioned from
the classic photographic film and darkroom expertise to the complexity of today’s digital photography
technology. Her experience expands to studio lighting and graphics computer skills. She is looking forward to
sharing her knowledge in her home community.

This indepth seminar is designed for all levels of photographers from the beginner to the more

experienced. She is looking to help improve and enhance their shots.

While in New York City as a professional photographer, she worked in fine arts, fashion, portraiture, still life
and journalistic cultural study. Her fashion images were published in various U.S. magazines including Bride,
Modern Bride, Bridal Guide, Elegant Bride, Martha Stewart Living, The Knot, Seventeen, Prom, and New York
Magazine. Her New York clients now use her images for their social media accounts.

Veretta’s fine art photography has resulted in exhibitions and publications of her work throughout her career.
Published works include New York Underground (2004), a coffee table photography book depicting the
nightlife in New York City in the late 1970’s. She has recently completed a book about the life and teachings of
a Lakota spiritual man, and is in the process of seeking a publisher.

Her work can be viewed at her website at www.veretta.com.

Free registration is available at the Gordon Parks Museum, online or over the phone, at 6202232700 ext.
