    Fauvism to Fascism

    Fauvism was characterized by the use of strident hues applied with gestural brushmarks for expressive rather than descriptive ends (derisively described by contemporary critics as the work of ‘Wild Beasts,’ in French Fauves) and was considered cutting-edge art of the most experimental kind at the dawn of the last century. However, both Vlaminck and Derain chose to abandon this affiliation, embarking on divergent stylistic paths that caught the attention and eventually support of the arts administration under the Third Reich.

    Summer Teen Master Class for Students Ages 12 - 15 with Ted Nash

    Students spend an intensive week investigating ways in which visual art, music, and performance can and do intersect. Taking a page from Tom Marioni, whose work is part of the exhibition "Summer Nocturne," students create their own version of "Soundactions". How can an action create a percussive rhythm as well as marks on a page? What does sound look like when drawn in space?

    Film Screening of "47 Samurai"

    The story of the 47 loyal samurai, who avenged for their master’s wrongful death, has been told ever since the fateful historical events that took place early in the eighteenth century. This 20th century version of the "47 Samurai" (1962) directed by Hiroshi Inagaki, stands out among the numerous films and television series as a classic for re-creating the excitement and complexity of the story through lavish period settings and costumes, and with performances by some of the great stars of the era.
