Monday, April 13 at 5:30pm: Exclusive showing at Historic Jane Pickens Theater
London’s National Gallery, one of the world’s foremost art institutions, is itself portrayed as a brilliant work of art in this, famed director Frederick Wiseman’s 39th film documentary.
“When we first saw glowing reviews of this award-winning film, we knew immediately it had to be seen at the historic Jane Pickens Theater,” said Terry Dickinson, President of the Arts Alliance. “Newport lays claim to so many extraordinary arts organizations, all of whom shared in our enthusiasm and delight in sponsoring this extraordinary film. The fact that all proceeds will go to support the museum studies program for high school students (M.U.S.E.) at the Newport Art Museum means that Newport’s next generation of leaders and lovers of art and museums will be well served.”
Joining the ACA in sponsorship of this special evening:
• Audrain Automotive Museum
• International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum
• Jane Pickens Theater & Event Center
• Newport Art Museum
• Newport Historical Society
• Newport Restoration Foundation
• Preservation Society of Newport County
• Redwood Library

In the film, Director Wiseman portrays the workings of the museum and the joy of spending time with the masters, such as Vermeer, Caravaggio, Titian and Velázquez, Pissarro and Rubens, while eavesdropping in on connoisseurs who discourse upon the aesthetic, historical, religious and psychological underpinnings of these masterpieces.
