A Mendocino Art Center and Mendocino Film Festival Collaboration
Artwork by Larry Hanlon
Art Exhibits • Historic Displays • Live Performances • East of Eden Screenings
Join us for six weeks of free arts events, produced with the help of the California Arts Council, to explore and preserve the story, and celebrate images in art and film of the town’s transformation in the second half of the twentieth century from a dying mill town into a thriving arts colony that changed the coastal and county community.
Exhibits of historic photographs and of contemporary and historic art will be presented by arts organizations and businesses; theatrical events and community storytelling are included, and the program culminates in a weekend of free and benefit screenings of East of Eden, one of many revered movies filmed in and around Mendocino – and a cinematic portrait of the town in the 1950s.
Please check back for a detailed schedule.
