Opening Reception | The Sculpture Series: Recent Paintings by Robert Bunkin


This series of acrylic on canvas paintings began in 2014, when figurative artist Robert Bunkin moved from Staten Island to Westbeth Artists Housing in the West Village. At the time Bunkin was Curator of Art at the Staten Island Museum, and was deeply involved with world art history, both as curator and as an adjunct professor of art history at the Borough of Manhattan Community College. This engagement, along with his passion for sculpture, led him to develop a series of portraits of figurative sculptures that he found on his frequent visits to local and international museums, as well as sculptural works that were loaned to him by friends or in his possession. The series includes works from ancient Egypt, Rome, Meso-America, Tibet, West Africa, Gothic Italy, 19th Century America and Japan, and continues to grow. Artist Talk: Saturday, February 9, 2019, 1 PM Opening Reception: Saturday, February 9, 2019, 2-4 PM.

Play | A Bright New Boise: The Meager Profits of Modern Faith


In the mundane and dusty break room of a craft store in Idaho, someone is summoning The Rapture. Will, who has fled his rural hometown after a scandal at his Evangelical church, comes to the Hobby Lobby, not only for employment, but also to rekindle a relationship with Alex, his brooding teenage son, whom he gave up for adoption several years ago. Alex works there along with Leroy, his adopted brother and protector, and Anna, a hapless young woman who reads bland fiction but hopes for dramatic endings. As their manager, foul-mouthed Pauline, tries ceaselessly to find order (and profit) in the chaos of small business, these lost souls of the Hobby Lobby confront an unyielding world through the beige-tinted impossibility of modern faith. Samuel D. Hunter's A Bright New Boise is a earnest comedy about the meager profits of modern faith. A tudent production.

Film | In the Heat of the Night (1967): Five time Oscar winning mystery drama


An African-American police detective is asked to investigate a murder in a racially hostile southern town. 110 min. Director: Norman Jewison. Starring Sidney Poitier, Rod Steiger, Warren Oates. In the Heat of the Night won five Academy Awards, including the 1967 awards for Best Picture and Rod Steiger for Best Actor. The film was followed by two sequels, They Call Me Mister Tibbs! in 1970, and The Organization in 1971. In 1988, it also became the basis of a television series adaptation of the same name. Although the film was set in the fictional Mississippi town of Sparta (with supposedly no connection to the real Sparta, Mississippi), most of the movie was filmed in Sparta, Illinois, where many of the film's landmarks can still be seen. In 2002, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".

Film | Little Boy (1977): The town in which the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima was designed


The Little Boy bomb that was dropped on the people of Hiroshima was designed and tested in New Mexico, not far from Bernalillo, a town of Albuquerque where the director Danny Lyon constructed an adobe house for his family in the early 1970s. Willie Jaramillo, a friend of Lyon’s who previously appeared in his 1971 film Llanito. At age eighteen, he has just been released from prison for a series of minor offenses. As Lyon pounds his beat around town, asking friends and neighbors about Willie or about themselves, the film jumps back in time to scenes from Willie’s childhood, now idyllic next to his current troubles, and the history of one man’s life emerges as a fact of greater significance than the atom bomb itself. 54 min. Director: Danny Lyon.
