misc_none 7:00 PM Film: The Art of Romare Bearden - Weaver Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Joyce May   401-434-2453   eplibraryjoyce@yahoo.com
   

Weaver Library and the Artists Loop Memory Quilt-Collage Series present the documentary The Art of Romare Bearden for screening and discussion.  Artist and CCRI instructor Keith Fox will introduce the film and lead a discussion afterwards.

Romare Bearden, an African-American artist and writer renowned primarily for his brightly colored collages, created both complex and colorful works rooted in the history of western, African, and Asian art, literature and music.  His life and art took him from North Carolina to Pittsburgh and Harlem, and later in his life to the Caribbean island of St. Martin. The 30-minute documentary traces Bearden’s entire career, including his paintings and watercolors of the 1940s, his experimental and mature collages, and his large scale murals.  It offers insightful commentary from noted art scholars and historians and those who knew him, including Wynton Marsalis, Albert Murray, and Emma Amos.

The Artists Loop Memory Quilt Collage Series is a project led by Pnina Pressburger in collaboration with textile and collage artists working in mixed media.

CALLING ALL TOWNIES!  Weaver Library and the 50th Reunion Committee of East Providence High School's Class of 1966 invite you to a very special program.  As part of reunion festivities, members of the class of 1966 and current high school students will sit on a panel answering questions that highlight the similarities and differences in attending East Providence High School a half-century apart. 

Professor James Martin from the Class of 1966 will moderate the panel.  Professor Martin has a PhD in English Literature, Religion, and Theology from Boston University.  He has authored six books on how colleges and universities can best meet the needs of students and faculties. He teaches subjects in American Literature, including the Culture and Counterculture of the 1960s at Mount Ida College.

Whether you are 16 or 66, this is going to be INFORMATIVE and FUN!  Light refreshments will be available.
