LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The Frazier History Museum kicked off its newest exhibit on Friday in the sweetest way by combining the art of making gelato with the art of photography.

To celebrate the opening of the museum's Julius Friedman exhibit, Fifty Years Retrospective, the Louisville artist himself helped children recreate his famous photo that depicts a French horn filled with ice cream.

“We got to scoop ice cream onto a French horn because Julius Friedman, he has a picture that looked like that,” young artist Camille McCay said.

Unlike the photo, participants could feel and taste their works of art.
 
“What can we do to get children involved in this museum?” Friedman asked. “Let’s illustrate one of my posters. The easiest one was, well, kids love ice cream, and so let’s fill up ice cream in one of the French horns!”
 
Maybe it was the sugar or the excitement, but it seemed like everyone took away something from the project.

“Having fun and being with new friends. I learned having fun is what matters,” Alayna Burke said. She was among the lucky few who had a chance to scoop ice cream into the horn.
 
Friedman said this delicious collaboration is dedicated to teaching young minds about the beauty of art.
