Our art exhibit Street Trees will be closing at the end of September. This is your last chance to see Street Trees before it closes, and stay to watch a free program of short films selected and introduced by artist Ted Knighton.

Reception begins at 6pm, Screenings at 7pm - Admission is free!

Short films are ubiquitous, especially now with the internet and hand-held devices.  However, the films online have been digitized into videos, and they most often play at low resolutions, usually the size of a postcard, surrounded by ads and other distractions.  Their beauty is lost, and as a result they feel disposable.  For this reason, Street Trees' artist and short-filmmaker Ted Knighton welcomes you to an evening of short films, as they were intended to be seen, on celluloid and in a communal setting.
