Explore public art at Acme Screening Room

Join the ACME Screening Room at 6 p.m. Saturday, July 13, for “An Evening on Public Art” that explores the work of two different artists and inspires discovery.

The evening begins with “Walking on Water,” the documentary film of Christo and Jeanne-Claude: "The Floating Piers” on Italy’s Lake Iseo, a work that transforms environments into experiential artwork, on an epic scale.

Then, local artist Ray King Studio will join in for a screening of a series of short films of his work, with discussion to follow.

King uses the natural phenomena of light as it interacts with glass and optics as an art medium. His luminous sculptures act as optical instruments, projecting and reflecting light and color into the surrounding environment. All are site-specific and inspired by the location and landscape to create a unique sense of place and identity.

This evening is part of Acme’s Artist Vision series, supported by the Hunterdon County Cultural and Heritage Commission.

Tickets for “Walking on Water” at 6 p.m. are $10, or $8 for members and students. Tickets for the 8 p.m. Ray King Short films and Q&A are $15, or $10 for members and $8 for students. Tickets for both events are $20 or $15 for members.
