Film Screening – Lost in the Stars: A Video Portrait of Maxwell Anderson
February 22, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
“Lost in the Stars: A Video Portrait of Maxwell Anderson” written and co-produced by Richard Connelly, is a free film screening at Rockland Center for the Arts on February 22nd at 7:00pm.
The film is in conjunction with the exhibit “American Modernism: 20th Century Influencers in Rockland”, art by luminaries who lived in Rockland County from the 1910s through the 1960s.
Modernism presented a radical break with the rigid structures of the past, prompting a search for new forms of expression, fostering a period of experimentation in the arts. This exhibition explores preeminent artists from all disciplines and how they brought Modernist thinking and ideas to Rockland County—and American masterpieces to the world.
The local Rockland landscape influenced many residents over the course of the 20th century and, in turn, the artists and intellectuals who found inspiration here influenced one another.
Today, the impact of these innovators continues to reverberate on both a local and international scale. American Modernism: 20th Century Influencers in Rockland will be on view January 12 through February 23, 2020. This exhibition is in partnership with the Historical Society of Rockland County.
Exhibition-related programs will also include: a panel discussion on the Artists and Intellectuals of South Mountain Road, Saturday, February 8th at 1:00pm (free to the public). Exhibition-based school visits will integrate Modern Art, Rockland County and American history for grades 3 through 12. The gallery will be closed February 8th for events.
