Elvis! hypertalk by Gary Vikan, Director, the Walters Art Museum
Who knew that Elvis, Michael Jackson and countless Christian saints actually share so much in common?! Their venerated remains draw pilgrims to Graceland, Neverland Ranch and countless places across the globe, so join us tonight and celebrate all things immaterial in their honor at the Walters.
Regional premiere screening of the film, a woman like that
Don’t miss the region’s premiere screening of award-winning filmmaker Ellen Weissbrod’s 2010 film, a woman like that.
This dazzling bio about Artemisia Gentileschi, the talented 17th century artist whose only limitation seemed tied to how women were perceived, is brilliantly juxtaposed to the filmmaker's own revelations during an obsessive journey to find the true meaning of "carpe diem".
The film’s filmmaker and producer will briefly introduce the film, followed by a short question/answer discussion with the audience.
Price: FREE to all college students, staff and faculty with a valid I.D. and artists with current membership in any area arts organization (partial list below). Also with free admission to the ticketed special exhibition Treasures of Heaven; pre-registration is recommended.
