Checkerboard Films on the American Arts: Recent Releases

January 7 – February 25

Checkerboard Film Foundation is a nonprofit institution established in 1979 to document, through film and video, artists who have made unique and important contributions to American art, architecture, and design. Checkerboard’s surveys examine such diverse subjects as contemporary artists like Kiki Smith, art historians like Vincent Scully, and individual structures including Jean Nouvel’s Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis and the KieranTimberlake firm’s Loblolly House on the Chesapeake Bay. This five-part series presents a few recent projects from Checkerboard, including new portraits of James Rosenquist and Frank Stella and a look at Cornell Tech, the graduate school for technology, engineering, and applied science on Roosevelt Island in New York City. Special thanks to Edgar Howard, president of Checkerboard Film Foundation.
