Back by popular demand, the Farnsworth is proud to once again present two teen-made films, produced by the museum's Julia's Gallery for Young Artists:  ArtWORKS - a stop-motion animation film created by local middle and high school students and Alexis Pastuhov's The Roaring Twenties a youth produced music video featuring local singer-songwriter Alexis Pastuhov. Both films will be accompanied by a documentary about the making of each film.

Join us on Sunday, June 19, 3 p.m. at the Strand Theatre, for the world premiere of ArtWORKS, a stop-motion animation film created by local middle and high school students. This program is free to the public and no reservations are necessary.
