Art Around Athens (and Beyond)

Mark your calendars for this coming Monday (December 6), at Ciné in downtown Athens, where Neil Rosenbaum, son of the artist Art Rosenbaum, will be at a special screening of his new feature documentary, "Sing My Troubles: Visits with Georgia Women Carrying Musical Traditions into the 21st Century." Art is also featured in the documentary, visiting these musical artists and talking with them about their memories and life experiences. The film will show at 5 and 7:30 p.m., with a live musical performance (including some of the folks featured in the movie) at 6:30 p.m., and a Q&A with Art and Neil following the later screening. Admission is $12. GMOA patrons may remember that Neil also made a documentary about his father that accompanied his exhibition at the museum in 2006-7 and is included with the exhibition catalogue, "Weaving His Art on Golden Looms: Paintings and Drawings by Art Rosenbaum."
