Art in the Lobby: Opening Reception for “Ghosts”

Wed. Feb 6 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

- Free

In conjunction with the Cave of Forgotten Dreams screening on Wednesday, February 6, Railroad Square Cinema will open a new art show featuring the work of Abby Shahn and the poetry of Mark Melnicove. The two have collaborated on a project called “Ghosts” in which Mark responds poetically to Abby’s images. Mark writes, “While the poems gestated, I happened to visit Native American pictograph sites and saw ghosts emerge from the eroded shapes in rock walls that bore uncanny resemblances to Abby’s paintings.” On the evening of February 6th, we will view Abby’s fascinating work, hear Mark read some of his poetry, and explore the intersection of art and psyche with Werner Herzog’s unforgettable film.

Free and open to the public. Light snacks and libations will be served.
