Larry Kanfer Gallery and Frasca International -- Thursday, April 8, 2010
OLLI members experienced an incredible day of private, behind-the-scenes tours when we traveled to two commercial ventures in Champaign County.
Our first stop was a visit to the gallery of Larry Kanfer, a premier photographer of Midwest landscapes whose artwork is showcased in collections nationwide. Kanfer spoke about his photography and led us through the gallery he opened nearly 30 years ago, which features five rooms of original artwork, an atrium gallery, and an outdoor courtyard.
After lunch at the historic Silvercreek restaurant, we headed to Frasca International in Urbana, a company that designs and manufactures a variety of flight simulators and training equipment for airlines, flight schools, and military organizations worldwide.
