Stay inspired this summer with Summer of Shorts, featuring ten new films premiering across ten consecutive Fridays throughout the summer.

“Art isn’t a material, it’s not a medium—it’s not a certain product. It is the choices I’ve been able to make.”
“Drawing is like practicing the piano, because the first ones that I do often don’t come out so I have to practice.”
“Beauty is just kind of an accident. Beauty is just a happenstance. Beauty is the remainders of being a painter.”
We do all of this with your support.
