One Line, One Prop, One Theme, 24 Hours.
Thursday, March 19 –
On the third Thursday of each month, Philbrook entices guests with speakers, hands-on activities and community collaboration on the topic of contemporary arts and culture. This Thursday, Philbrook opens its doors to the annual 24-Hour Video Race Screening. The 9th annual, statewide 24-Hour Video Race started its clock at Midnight, Feb. 6, at Living Arts of Tulsa. Every year, three elements – a line, prop and theme – are given to participating teams without notice. They then have 24 hours to write, shoot and edit their short, creatively incorporating these pieces within: This year’s elements – the line: it took me ten years, but I finally got it; the prop: rubber gloves; and the theme: life on the edge – sent contestants off on their creative challenge. Participants had to turn in their 5-minute or less video to Living Arts or Individual Arts of Oklahoma by Midnight on Feb. 7 to be included. The madness of the 24-hour race, which shows us just how talented some of our state’s video artist are, is behind us, now, audiences are welcomed to join the filmmakers, artists and actors who’ve created some timeless pieces as they screen their shorts at Philbrook Museum of Art on Rockford on Thursday, March 19. Enjoy a pre-screening party at 6:30 p.m., with the screening beginning at 7. An awards reception will follow the screening, at Living Arts of Tulsa. For more information, visit www.livingarts.org.
