Film: Robert Williams Mr. Bitchin
Saturday, January 24, 2015 - 2:00 pm

Film: Robert Williams Mr. Bitchin

Arthur Bell Auditorium

This Film explores the remarkable art and life of painter extraordinaire Robert Williams an American underground legend, examining the territory between pop culture and fine art, and measuring the multiple meanings of "success" - financial, artistic, popular and critical.

An artist in search of a movement,  Robert Williams was a prolific oil painter whose painstakingly detailed work often featured naked women, death, destruction, booze and clowns, he didn't quite fit the fine art mold. In the early 1960s he was confronted with trendy abstraction and superficial pop art. Schooled in the Hot Rod Culture of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth and Von Dutch, he emerged as a leader in the Underground Comic revolution along with R. Crumb, contributing regularly to Zap Comix. His antisocial paintings of an alternative reality were marginalized by the art world for decades although he became a hero of sorts for underground artists. His notoriety exploded when his painting Appetite for Destruction was used (and much vilified) as the cover for the 1987 Guns N' Roses' album of the same name.

When he started Juxtapoz Magazine in 1994, his movement found him. Legions of artists looking for a place within the contemporary art world for their cartoonish realism identified with his "LowBrow" aesthetic. At the time, Williams predicted that, "Low brow and alternative art are the crack in the dam and with this leak the art world will never be the same".

Tickets are $8.00 general admission and $6.00 Museum Alliance Members

One of the most extraordinary duos in jazz performing today, the New York Times calls Peter and Will Anderson, “Virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone.” At the young age of 15 they toured the United Kingdom, playing traditional jazz, swing and bebop. They attended Juilliard in New York City, and have performed with Wynton Marsalis, Jimmy Heath, Wycliffe Gordon and the Village Vanguard Orchestra. They’ve headlined at New York’s Jazz at Lincoln Center, the New Orleans Jazz Fest, Sarasota FL Jazz Festival, South Carolina’s Jazz Corner, Seattle’s Triple Door, and Iowa’s Bix Beiderbecke Festival. Their debut recording of original compositions, Correspondence was listed by Vanity Fair magazine in “Four New Releases to Make You Love Jazz.” The Anderson’s Trio recently released Reed Reflections, which the Washington Post calls “imaginatively unfolding in ways that consistently bring a fresh perspective to classic jazz tunes.” In 2013, they produced and performed in an Off-Broadway jazz show, Le Jazz Hot, which broke box office sales and was nominated for a Drama Desk award. Peter and Will currently live in New York City, where they are busy performing, composing, and touring. www.PeterAndWillAnderson.com
