Art Films: Museum Town @ Oolite Arts - O Cinema - Zoom _ Vimeo

Join Oolite Arts for the first Art Films of the year in collaboration with O Cinema. This edition will feature an online free screening of “Museum Town,” followed by a post-film discussion with director Jennifer Trainer, Oolite's President and CEO Dennis Scholl and founder and Chairman of MASS MoCA (1988-1992) Thomas Krens.In 2017, MASS MoCA became the largest museum for contemporary art in the world—but just three decades before, its vast brick buildings were the abandoned relics of a massive shuttered factory. How did such a wildly improbable transformation come to be? A testament to tenacity and imagination, MUSEUM TOWN traces the remarkable story of how a rural Massachusetts town went from economic collapse to art mecca.
