Night Light: An Evening of Color, Line, & Play for Adults!

Madison Room
Fri, 06/01/2018 - 6:00pm to 10:00pm

All are welcome to join in an evening exploring Color, Line, and Play. Experience an exploratory exhibition by Laura and Sachi Komai, dabble in various collaborative art projects, and dive into the world of Anji Play. Swing in for a bit or stay all night!

Line & Color are Sisters:
Two sisters with the same upbringing and genetics approach art-making with different talents and interests. Competing, collaborating, working independently or in reaction to the other, Laura and Sachi Komai have been sisters for fortysomething years, artists for slightly less than that, and coworkers for 15 years.
These two sisters, with their individual focus on color and line respectively, interact with and influence each other, and touch on questions of how line and color interact within the worlds of art and nature.

Anji Play:
Remember how it felt to sink deep into the world of play as a child? Let's see if we can reclaim some of that joy as adults. Get an exclusive sneak peek of the library's newly arrived Anji Play materials and re-discover your own self-determined play without any of those pesky kids telling you what to do. Learn more about Anji Play at

Cash bar available.

First Friday Flicks - CALL ME BY YOUR NAME

Meeting Room
Fri, 06/01/2018 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

"In Northern Italy in 1983, seventeen year-old Elio begins a relationship with visiting Oliver, his father's research assistant, with whom he bonds over his emerging sexuality, their Jewish heritage, and the beguiling Italian landscape."(132mins|USA)
IMDb entry:

"Call Me by Your Name is rife with similar instances of (Luca) Guadagnino allowing the film to assume the perspectives of its young hedonists. Lustrously shot by Sayombhu Mukdeeprom, the sun-bathed days and idyllic nights of the region are picturesque, drowning every frame of the film in the kind of decadence that’s characterized Guadagnino’s prior work (I Am Love, A Bigger Splash), but with a strength of purpose that he’s never fully achieved to this point. Call Me exists in a world of immense privilege, to be sure, but Guadagnino uses the idyll of a worry-free excursion as one of his many methods in capturing the kind of love and lust that makes its participants leave the world behind. The film’s vision of Italy plays with/against the common perceptions of it as a land of untamed passion, both for humor and for tone, and the gorgeous country plays as integral a role in Elio and Oliver’s story as either actor."
-Dominick Suzanne-Mayer, Consequence of Sound
