Movie Matinee

3/4/2018 / 1:30pm - 4:00pm

Save the Date

We’ll have an exclusive viewing of a movie about printmaking entitled “Art Is ...The Permanent Revolution.” Three contemporary artists and a master printer explore how social reality and protest are conveyed in art. While the stirring works of the masters sweep by—among them prints by Rembrandt, Goya, Daumier, Kollwitz, Dix, Grosz, and Picasso—the making of an etching, a woodcut and a lithograph unfolds before our eyes as the contemporary artists join their illustrious predecessors in creating art of social engagement. Featuring Sigmund Abeles, etcher; Ann Chernow, lithographer; Paul Marcus, woodcutter; and James Reed, master printer.
