MOVIES IN THE PARK: "MAKING ART IN THE UNIVERSE"
Durham Cinematheque is in its eighth season of stitching together "real film under real stars" in Durham Central Park. Curator Tom Whiteside marshals stray bits of art and archival films into idiosyncratic, dreamlike essays on ideas and historical currents. This Friday's program, "Making Art in the Universe," blends documentaries about artists Edward Kienholz, Jackson Pollock, and Georgia O'Keeffe with various science films, including Powers of Ten by Ray and Charles Eames. The program bridges the visions of artists and astronomers against the backdrop of the night sky, like a long-tailed synapse firing. Bring a blanket and a picnic basket. —Brian Howe
