Friday, July 26–Sunday, August 25, 2013 Perris Hill Park in San Bernardino is the second site for the LACMA9 Art + Film Lab. Area residents are invited to participate in free film workshops, an oral history project, outdoor film screenings, plus a free day at LACMA. Presented by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in collaboration with the City of San Bernardino Parks and Recreation and the Arts Council.
About the City of San Bernardino Located south of the San Bernardino Mountains and west of the lower desert, San Bernardino is known for its scenic beauty and strategic location. It is the largest city in the County of San Bernardino with a population of over 200,000 people. Early influences of Native Americans, Mexican settlers, Spanish missionaries and Mormon emigrants still echo throughout the city today forming a community rich in history and cultural diversity. Known as LACMA9 Art + Film Lab, the project opens its doors Friday, June 7, at the University of Redlands. The structure consists of three elements: a computer lab, an art-making space and an audiovisual lab, each housed in a trailer-like room radiating from a central hub.
A screen installed between two of the sections will be used for nighttime movie presentations. All the programs are free. The workshops, on topics such as documentary making, composition and sound design, will be offered in the first two rooms. The audiovisual lab will host oral history sessions, in which members of the public can talk about their lives. “People will record a story about their community or a significant story in their life,” said Sarah Jesse, the art museum’s associate vice president of education. “If they bring a flash drive, they can take (a copy of the session) with them.” The lab will be at the Redlands site until July 7. From July 26 to Aug. 25, it will be at Perris Hill Park in San Bernardino, next to the senior center.
