Picasso and the Mayor: The Chicago Picasso on 16mm Film

South Side Projections and Co-Prosperity Sphere present Picasso and the Mayor: The Chicago Picasso on 16mm Film Where: Co-Prosperity Sphere, 3219-21 South Morgan Street, Chicago IL 60608 When: Thursday, January 23 at 7pm
Cost: $5 suggested donation South Side Projections commemorates the 47th anniversary of the dedication of the Chicago Picasso in Daley Plaza by presenting two contemporary films with decidedly different opinions about the massive sculpture. Local filmmaker Tom Palazzolo and Art Institute of Chicago museum educator Annie Morse will be present to discuss the somewhat ridiculous but mostly factual circumstances of Richard J. Daley's push to bring massive modernist public art to Chicago. Public television station WNET's film The Chicago Picasso (1967, 60 min., 16mm) is a slick, entertaining educational film about how great men with big ideas, sacks of cash, and steel smelters helped bring cutting-edge art to the citizens of Chicago. Tom Palazzolo shot The Bride Stripped Bare (1967, 12 min., 16mm) at the dedication ceremony, sending up what he called the "absurd and mystical pomp bound up in grandiose ceremonies." Both films will be screened from 16mm film.
