If you are a senior looking to partake in art experiences and meet fellow life-long learners this program is for you! Join us on June 9 for a special Cinema for Seniors screening of the film Factory Girl followed by a group discussion. Factory Girl is a biographical film about Edie Sedgwick, who was a muse of Andy Warhol. We will be showing this film on the night of our opening celebration for From Warhol to Banksy.
The film will be screened in our Ledcor Theatre (located in the lower-level of the gallery) in English. This program is around 2 hours in length, including the 99- minute film, a 30-minute discussion and tea and treats for all guests. This program is organized by our Aging Artfully Seniors Group.
Entrance to the program is $5 with no one turned away due to lack of funds. Barrier Free access can be accessed online by selecting the appropriate Barrier Free ticket, or by coming to the gallery and requesting the Barrier Free ticket.
