UNF art faculty/students host ‘ArtWork(ers) United’ drive-in-movie experience

September 29, 2020

ArtWorkers United“ArtWork(ers) United,” a drive-in style, all-digital film projection event showcasing over 100 artists presenting visual art, music, poetry, spoken word, dance and video works, will take place 8 to 11:59 p.m. Friday, Oct. 2, in Parking Lot 14 at the University of North Florida.  

 

This project features artists from across the country presenting their creative works and was conceived by The Creatives, a Jacksonville artist collective, with input and participation from UNF art and design faculty and students.

 

“ArtWork(ers) United” meets at the intersection of art and activism and was created in response to current world events. The event aims to open essential dialog about society and an opportunity to remind people to vote.

 

“I am proud to work alongside this collective of artists as we share our art in attempt to cope and find unity and hope during these difficult times, said Jenny Hager, UNF sculpture professor and one of the project creators. “Some of the art is funny, some sad, some beautiful, some difficult, and together the film portrays such powerful expressions of our world.”

 

This event is free and open to the public. The film screening event can be safely experienced from inside an attendee’s parked car with sound transmitted by radio or at home over the live stream. The live-stream link will be posted on the Facebook event page prior to the event. Masks must be worn at all times while on the UNF campus. For more information, visit the ArtWork(ers) United website.

 

This event was originally scheduled for September 25, 2020 but was rescheduled due to rain.
