Using direct drawing materials, participants created family pictures for current and imagined experiences. Come participate by adding your own take on making and remaking family.

2nd floor: Curious by Lindsay Marx: Marx's paintings look at curiosity and daydreaming through a child's world. They also tap into how adults relate to their own curiosities.

1st floor: Sone una Milpa featuring artists J. Leigh Garcia and Maria Amalia: Soñe una Milpa (I dreamed of a corn field) is a collaborative art project that acknowledges and celebrates the important, though often hidden experience of Latina immigrant women.

First Friday Flicks - KEDI

First Friday Flicks - KEDI

Pinney Library
12/01/2017
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

A profile of an ancient city and its unique people, seen through the eyes of the most mysterious and beloved animal humans have ever known, the Cat.(2017|79mins|Turkey)
IMDb entry: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4420704/

"Whatever the city’s official attitude toward its many felines, Istanbulites’ dedication and love appear unflagging. Kedi eloquently taps into the mutual attraction between the cats and their people, as well as the animals’ complexity and resilience. The simplistic conventional 'wisdom' about cats, always uttered by people who don’t know them, is that they’re aloof. Ceyda Torun’s film is a vibrant illustration of just how attuned they are to people, how interested and discerning. If her collection of feline portraits has an emotional/philosophical throughline, it’s the idea that, for we humans, interacting only with people isn’t enough, as one man sums it up."
Sheri Linden - The Hollywood Reporter

Seating is first come, first served with space for 50 attendees. Doors open 1/2 hour before the film start time. Light refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Pinney Library. This film is unrated. Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.

Hawthorne Library

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

A group of 30 young men and women go on a bus tour to Nanaki Village, a shadowy village with an urban legend of being a utopia. Many seek either to start a new life or escape the troubles of their old one. Upon arrival, they discover the village has no inhabitants, with small signs of life that are slowly deteriorating. The truth of Nanaki Village has yet to be discovered.

The Hawthorne Anime Club was created to give people a place to gather, watch, and talk about Japanese animation. Each meeting will include screenings of everything from classic titles to new releases. The club is aimed primarily at teens and adults. Films are shown in Japanese with English subtitles. Refreshments served at each meeting.

Call ahead to reserve your spot! People under age 16 who are interested in attending are required to have a parent present or to have a signed parental permission slip.
