Hairy Who and the Chicago Imagists (2014)
Sunday, October 18, 3:00-5:00 p.m. 
IU Cinema

In the mid-1960s, a group of artists located in Chicago offered a Midwestern alternative to the Pop art scene on the coasts. This recent documentary is the first film to tell the "wild, woolly, utterly irreverent story" of these artists. (109 min., Not Rated). 

These programs are presented in partnership with the IU Cinema and are sponsored in part by Marsha R. Bradford and Harold A. Dumes. The talks and films are free and open to the public.
