CANCELED // “Style Wars” Movie Screening @ Main Library
Mar 19 @ 6:15 pm – 8:00 pm
CANCELED // "Style Wars" Movie Screening @ Main Library | Dedham | Massachusetts | United States

Join us as we continue our Graffiti Series with “Style Wars”, a documentary film that premiered in 1983, when the world received its first full immersion in the phenomenon that had taken over New York City. The urban landscape was physically transformed by graffiti artists who invented a new visual language to express both their individuality, and the voice of their community.

In STYLE WARS, New York’s ramshackle subway system is their public playground, battleground, and spectacular artistic canvas. As MC’s, DJ’s and B-boys rock the city with new sounds and new moves, we see street corner breakdance battles turn into performance art.

Winner of Best Documentary at Sundance Film Festival.

Featuring: graffiti writer Case/Kase 2

graffiti writer Skeme and his mother

graffiti “villain” Cap

graffiti writer Dondi Seen and Shy 147

graffiti documentarian (and co-producer of the film) Henry Chalfant

breakdancer Crazy Legs of Rock Steady Crew

Join us for an opportunity to get yourself into a relaxed & meditative space, one which you can create for yourself any time you want.

We will learn to draw a mandala, another word for sacred circle. The intricate look of a mandala comes from following a rhythm, which can produce stunning results. This type of repetition can be very relaxing and is a great way to bring yourself gently into the present. Mandalas can also work as a form of visual journaling, boost your creativity, memory and problem solving skills, as well as provide stress relief and spiritual self-expression.

This simple practice is not only powerful, it is fun and exciting!

Appropriate for adults & teens. Space is limited so please register through www.eventbrite.com. Any questions email: gbird@minlib.net
