950: American Art and Film 1900-1950

February 5-7
11:45 AM - 1:15 PM

This Short will try to show the link and cross pollination of American art and film. It is not necessarily a one-to-one capture of moving image to art nor from art to moving image. It is more of a spirit of the age or zeitgeist as reflected in both urban and rural contexts. The trends of where we choose to live informs our values as well. Movie clips and examples of visual art will be presented in context.
