Film: Installing Indiana by Dale Schierholt

July 15, 2009
Wednesday, July 15, 6 p.m.
Farnsworth Auditorium
Join documentary filmmaker Dale Schierholt for the public premier of Installing Indiana, which tells the story of setting up the exhibition Robert Indiana and the Star of Hope at the Farnsworth. This is a unique opportunity to see the behind-the-scenes process of assembling a major art exhibition. Interviews with the Farnsworth curatorial staff, combined with footage of the installation in progress, illustrate the logisticaland the physical hurdles of mounting the exhibition. Whether lifting Indiana'a EAT  to the Farnsworth's roof, placing the large outdoor sculptures on the lawn or hanging the paintings and prints inside the galleries, Installing Indiana will offer a revealing look at this exhibit. Schierholt will be available for questions and discussion after the film.
Seating: limited to 80 people
This event is free and advanced reservations are not required
