We've curated a set of films in dialog with the arts, film making and local history with a spotlight on 16mm reels on loan from the Miami-Dade Public Library System’s Special Collections and Archives! This film series pairs with our current on-site activation CLASSWORK. Come check out a movie, relax and thumb through some art texts...why not?
These events are free and open to the public.
