2015 Contemporary Chinese Ink Art Exhibit
3/20/2015 - 4/30/2015
Roberson Museum and Science Center
30 Front Street Binghamton, NY 13905

Admission: Admission is free for members. Costs for nonmembers are $8 per adult, $6 per student/senior, and free for all children under four years old.
Detail: Roberson Museum and Science Center will proudly host the exhibition Reshuffling the Past: 2015 Contemporary Chinese Ink Art in conjunction with the Confucius Institute of Chinese Opera at Binghamton University. Roberson is very excited to bring a traveling international exhibit to our region. We will be a host site for “Reshuffling the Past: 2015 Contemporary Chinese Ink Art Exhibition.” The works of 8 Chinese ink artists were selected to be part of this exhibition which will be on view at Roberson March 20-April 30. This project, organized by the Confucius Institute Headquarters, promotes the development of Chinese contemporary culture and shows the world that, as China’s own traditional art form, ink continues to possess creative vitality today. The exhibition is made possible thanks to a partnership between Roberson and the Confucius Institute of Chinese Opera at Binghamton University. Chinese ink and wash painting is an elegant and expressive art form dating back more than a thousand years. While most collections of Chinese ink painting in major museums in Europe and the U.S. focus on its classic forms, this exhibition highlights modern and contemporary examples. The eight invited artists showcased in this exhibition are currently the leading explorers of ink painting.

Binghamton Theater Organ Society presents "The King of Kings"
7pm
Forum Theatre
236 Washington St
Downtown Binghamton, Ny
Admission: Adults-$15, Donating Member Adults $10, Families up to 6 over 7 years $30, Veterans and familes, Students, and under 22 $5 7 years and under free with adult, groups of 15-29 $10 each, 30 or more $8 each.
Detail: The Binghamton Theater Organ Society, Inc (BTOS) announces its first showing at the Forum Theatre of the epic Cecil B. DeMille 1927 silent film "The King of Kings." The 2nd of DeMille's trilogy of classic Biblical films released between 1923 and 1932, "King of Kings" depicts the period of JC's life around His crucifixion wit side stories relating to the growing portrayal of the lives surrounding the life of Christ. The film uses early Technicolor in many significant scenes which are often seeming "casts of thousands." The Disciples and Mary Magdalene are depicted in Biblical realism and the special effects DeMille used for several scenes including the Resurrection and the Ascension were quite dramatic for the era! Resident Master Theatre Organist Jim Ford musically interprets and expounds the film's dramatic story. It is his goal that the music he provides supports the actor's Silent Roles and becomes part of the whole Silent Film experience rather than a "Concert." Only at the end of the film will the audience realize how important the role the Theatre Organist plays in imitating a live orchestra to bring the Film to "life." Ford is an organist at Christ the King Lutheran Church, Vestal, and is well known in the Southern Tier for his striking ability to musically interpret the actors' emotions for which "King of Kings" is a powerful example. This film has never been seen on the Big Screen of the Forum Theatre. The high quality DVD used for this screening is made possible by the exceptional work of David Shephard's Film Preservation Associates, Inc. in Hat Creek, California. Shephard is very well known in his field and a regular provider to BOTS of quality "re-mastered" silent films. Tickets are easily available at the door. Please call 607-773-1495 to reserve the date and a special screening date
