The Muscarelle Museum of Art is so pleased to announce that we will be sponsoring the W&M Global Film Festival’s screening of The Price of Everything: An Art World Odyssey in cooperation with the 1693 Scholars and the William & Mary Department of Art and Art History! This film gives unprecedented access to pivotal artists and the white-hot market surrounding them, and dives deep into the contemporary art world, holding a mirror up to our values and our times – where everything can be bought and sold.

 

Join us at the Kimball Theatre (428 W Duke of Gloucester Street) for the screening on Saturday, February 2 at 8:00 PM (film run-time 98 mins). Tickets are available here.  This event will be hosted by Richard Lowry, Professor of English and Film and Media Studies and the Director of the film, Nathanial Kahn. There will be a Q&A after the film, so be sure to stay for that!

ART FILM FRIDAY

Join us for our first Art Film Friday of the Spring semester on February 1, 5:30 PM, at Tucker Theater (Tucker 127A)! We are proud to present the film !Women Art Revolution in cooperation with the W&M Global Film Festival as part of the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of coeducation at William & Mary and in Virginia.   For more than forty years, filmmaker and visual artist Lynn Hershman Leeson has collected interviews with her contemporaries and shaped them into an intimate portrayal of their fight to break down barriers facing women both in the art world and society at large. !Women Art Revolution deftly illuminates this under-explored movement through conversations, observations, archival footage and works of visionary artists, historians, curators and critics. Starting from its roots in 1960s antiwar and civil rights protests, the film details the tenacity and courage of pioneering artists such as Judy Chicago, Guerrilla Girls, Joyce Kozloff, Howardena Pindell, Faith Ringgold, Miriam Schapiro and Nancy Spero among others. Emerging artists and an original score from Carrie Brownstein enhance !Women Art Revolution; a film that aptly touches on gender politics of the art world while striving to increase cultural awareness of the impact women artists make in our society.

The screening will include a short introduction by the student organizers. (Film run-time 83 mins).

The Director of Engagement is responsible for the development, planning, managing and representation of the outreach and educational programs of the Museum working collaboratively with various departments of the College, students and greater community. In his role as Distinguished Artist in Residence he will facilitate the creation and formation of a publishing atelier studio to produce limited editions of fine art prints by visiting artists.

 

Prince is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana. He received his BFA from Xavier University of Louisiana and his MFA in Printmaking and Sculpture from Michigan State University and has shown his art internationally in various solo, group, and juried exhibitions. Prince received several honors for his art and scholarship including the 2010 Teacher of the Year for the City of Hampton and has participated in several residencies including the 2007 Partners of the Americas Artist in Residence in Santa Catarina, Brazil. Prince has lectured and conducted workshops in both secular and sacred settings internationally in a variety of media. Many of his hands-on workshops and community-based projects have culminated in the creation of permanent communal based artworks. Among his public works is an 8′ x 8′ mixed media work entitled Lemonade: A Picture of America created in 2017 to commemorate the first three African American students in residence at William & Mary. He spreads a message of hope and renewal to the global community through the cathartic funerary tradition from New Orleans called the Dirge and Second Line operating under the credo, “your imagination is your only limitation.”
