The Cardboard Bellini

Fri. Sept. 4, 7pm

This film documents the process from start to finish - from premiering indoors in 2010 at the Taubman Museum of Art, Richmond VA, to, after shows in New York and Pittsburgh, being installed outdoors at our own Aldrich Museum in 2012, where it lasted six weeks. Grashow will be present for Q&A after the Friday night viewing. More...
