The evening's screening of the episode “Fantasy” presents four artists (Jeff Koons, Mary Heilmann, Florian Maier-Aichen and Cao Fei) whose works or personal stories transport viewers to imaginary worlds and altered states of consciousness. With works that seem at times hallucinatory, irreverent, a nd sublime, each of these artists pursues a vision first held in the mind's eye.
For more information and to view a highlight clip of the film and brief videos of each of the artists, go here: http://www.wvsarts.org/media.
WVSA ARTs connection launched 3rd Thursdays this fall by opening its doors the third Thursday evening of every month to host free gallery openings, performances, film screenings, author readings, and more. WVSA is striving to create an opportunity for established and aspiring artists to educate local youth and share their art with the local community.
This event is held at WVSA's ARTiculate Gallery located at 1100 16th Street, NW at the corner of 16th and L Street.
