Free Hour Films, Wednesdays, 12:00 – 1 p.m.
CADVC gallery theatre, 1st Floor Fine Arts
An experimental partnership between Maryland Traditions statewide folklife program, CADVC and the Orser Center for the Study of Place, Community and Culture to bring you memorable short documentary films followed by a discussion with an insider--a filmmaker or practitioner--or both.
This spring we offer you Baltimore Films/Baltimore People and a glimpse of three local legends.
Globe Posters' fluorescent ads for R&B bands and local events have been a part of street life for 80 years. At one time, it seemed that every telephone pole and tree sported a Globe poster. Ike & Tina Turner, James Brown, "King" Solomon Burke were all customers. Share a glimpse of a Baltimore tradition's last days and new beginnings. A post-screening discussion will be led by Bob Cicero, President of Globe Poster Printing; John Lewis, filmmaker and Arts Editor of Baltimore magazine; and Rei Spinnicchio, filmmaker.
This event is sponsored in part by the Department of American Studies; the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture, Maryland Traditions, the Orser Center for the Study of Place, Community and Culture; and the Maryland State Arts Council.
12 pm, Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture (located on the first floor of the Fine Arts Building). Admission is free. For more information call 410-455-3188.
