Batteries Not Included: Artworks by Christopher Rivera
August 21 - November 4, 2019
 
 
Looking back on his pre-digital childhood, artist Christopher Rivera finds more than just fond memories, he finds inspiration. The subjects of his paintings are iconic characters like He-Man, Barbie and Mr. Potato Head, transporting the viewer back to their own youth. This collection of works promotes open-ended reflection and a return to the days when children weren't so quick to grow up.

The Raft
August 30 - Septermber 2, 2019
 
 
This film tells the hidden story behind what has been described as 'one of the strangest group experiments of all time.' In the summer of 1973, five men and six women embarked on a 101-day scientific sea-adventure, drafting on a small raft across the Atlantic. Now, more than forty years later, the surviving members of 'The Acali Expedition' reunite, board a reconstruction of the raft, and tell their story.
