Architecture and Design Film Series:
Vincent Scully

Wednesday, February 19
6 pm
Contois Auditorium, City Hall
Free

Vincent Scully was likely the best-known art historian in the United States. His deep engagement with the subject and his passionate presentation style inspired generations of students at Yale University and beyond. This film examines Scully’s career as a professor, art historian, and writer through interviews with students and the architects closest to him. The breadth and depth of his knowledge, which included a close familiarity with literature as well as with the visual arts, lent a special richness to his historical interpretations. This film projects the energy and passion of this extraordinary teacher.

Throughout the month of February, local participating restaurants are supporting Art from the Heart by giving diners the option to add a $5 donation to their bill. These funds SHARE YOUR LOVE with the over 7,000 participant who benefit from this program. 

 

Volunteer with Art from the Heart

Looking for a meaningful way to volunteer? BCA is looking for Art from the Heart volunteers at the hospital to create with patients and families of all ages. We visit every day of the year, helping people feel better through the arts and transforming hospital spaces into studios. No special art skills needed, just a creative and compassionate approach.

Help especially needed on Thursday mornings with pediatrics, 8:45-12:30.
