Film Screening: ‘Images’ from Detroit’s Cass Corridor
- Halle Library Auditorium
- Wed, March 27, 5:30 - 6:35pm
During the late 1960s and through the 1970s, some artists living in Detroit explored alternative, inventive and personal approaches to making art. These artists shared their personal vision by being in geographical proximity to one another, making works that mark an era in Detroit’s history that is now regarded as being highly significant. The film is a tense visual montage combining original silent footage with new information and bringing to light the mood and art of the time. Artists presented in the movie include: John Egner, Steve Foust, Michael Luchs, Nancy Mitchnick, Gordon Newton, Ellen Phelan, Paul Schwarz and Robert Sestok. Original music by Mick Vranich accompanies this illuminating documentary.
