Rare Wildlife Revealed: The James Fiorentino Traveling Art Exhibition

Jan 13-Feb 19

Rare Wildlife Revealed: The James Fiorentino Traveling Art Exhibition 

Pollak Gallery - 9 AM

The youngest artist ever inducted into the prestigious New York Society of Illustrators, Fiorentino uses his trademark detail and realism in watercolor to paint New Jersey’s most endangered and vulnerable wildlife species. His evocative artwork inspires viewers through his life-like depictions of rare wildlife in their natural surroundings. His paintings truly bring wildlife to life on paper, and in doing so, his art helps to educate and engage viewers about the precipitous declines that many of these species have undergone. This exhibition is presented in partnership with Conserve Wildlife Foundation.

FILM SCREENING & FACULTY	LED DISCUSSION: REBIRTH OF A NATION BY PAUL D. MILLER AKA DJ SPOOKY

Feb 20

FILM SCREENING & FACULTY LED DISCUSSION: REBIRTH OF A NATION BY PAUL D. MILLER AKA DJ SPOOKY 

Wilson Auditorium - 4:30 PM

To create his film Rebirth of a Nation, Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky, remixed D.W. Griffith’s 1915 epic film The Birth of a Nation. His re-telling of this overtly racist story depicted in the Reconstruction-era United States hurtles Griffith’s images into the 21st century. The original film was based on a novel and theater play by Thomas Dixon entitled The Clansman. By applying DJ technique to cinema, Miller's new film parallels, deconstructs and remixes the original. He likes to think of it as “film as found object” in the same sense that artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Jeff Koons, Andy Warhol and David Hammons, among many others, have fostered creative investigations into the idea of found objects, cinema and “appropriation art.”
