Watching movies on the job!

By Nancy Pfau, Volunteer Docent

Well, after two days of watching the snow pile up recently, it was nice to have sunshine and a good excuse to drive to Cooperstown. The trip through the Cherry Valley by-pass where trees were glistening with hoar-frost was breathtakingly beautiful!

Today at training we watched the PBS documentary The Life and Times of Frida Kahlo in preparation for our upcoming exhibition, Frida Kahlo: Through the Lens of Nickolas Muray. The movie was totally enthralling! While I have been fascinated with her art for years, seeing it through the lens of her life's story enriches the experience, a life of pain made manifest in her unique paintings.

She did make absolutely fascinating art. Might have to check out that flick.
