Calling all art and film enthusiasts: On Saturday, Sept. 13, the Museum of disABILITY History will present its latest "Person First Forum," hosted by Starlight Studio, Art Gallery director Carrie Marcotte, teaching artist Maggie Parks, and six participating artists. The event, titled "Six Minds - Two Ways to Beauty" will take place from 1 until 2:30 p.m. at 3826 Main St., Buffalo.
Marcotte, Parks and the artists will host a panel discussion concerning their creative work with local media arts company Squeaky Wheel. Two short films, which are the result of this partnership, will be screened for attendees. An exhibition of student art also will be on display.
Supported by a grant from the Arts Service Initiative of Western New York, Starlight Studio and Art Gallery worked alongside Squeaky Wheel Film and Media Center to create two portraits in documentary film. The pictures, which highlight artists from Starlight Studio, were created through collaborative effort by six Starlight participants. Production included filming, storyboarding, sound editing and interviewing.
The "Person First Forum" is free to attend. Regular admission applies to those who wish to tour the Museum of disABILITY History, which is open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. For more information or to register for the event, call 716-629-3626.
