Something Like a Sabbatical Screening

Filmmakers Pamela Beere Briggs and William McDonald will be in town to premiere Something Like a Sabbatical, a documentary on artist Sue Mitchell’s 52-week art journey, which culminated in her “52” exhibit at RAM in October 2013.

Proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit “The 52 Project”. “The 52 Project”, a part of RAM’s Riverside Art Make, is about getting a group of creative people together to find inspiration and motivation from one another while working on a 52-week, self-directed art journaling project. The goal is to help you develop the habit of capturing your ideas and being more artful on a regular basis. For those who cannot afford the registration, we would like to set up a scholarship fund so everyone who wants to participate in being more artful in 2015 can join us.
