Cornell Cinema participates in Ithaca’s First Friday Gallery Night, a monthly 5–8pm walking tour of downtown Ithaca galleries, by presenting an art documentary at Cinemapolis at 9:15pm for $8/all. This fall films will be shown on three Fridays, beginning in September with a screening of Richard Artschwager: Shut Up and Look, about the late titular artist (who studied math and science at Cornell in the ‘40s) and his mischievous, engaging work and personality. October will bring Herb and Dorothy 50 x 50, about the middle-class couple who amassed the world's most important collection of contemporary art, and then, with the assistance of the National Gallery of Art, disseminated portions of it to 50 museums in each of the 50 states. The series will conclude with Diller Scofidio + Renfro: Reimaining Lincoln Center and the High Line, about the interdisciplinary architecture firm that recently completed two large-scale, high-profile projects in New York City. Each film will be repeated on campus on Tuesday nights in Willard Straight Theatre. Cosponsored with the Dept. of Art, the Cornell Council for the Arts, the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art and the Downtown Ithaca Alliance.
