Admission to Art Video Nights is free. Visitors are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs.
Wednesday December 5 at 8pm – Love, Time & Decorum
This year’s edition of Art Video opens with a program about body language, behavior, knowledge, and motion: it traces the undercurrent of sensuality and anxiety connecting these otherwise disparate films.
