I wanted to let you know that the UVM Libraries and the Office of 
Student Life and Campus Programs have teamed up to offer students, staff 
and faculty an opportunity (complete with refreshments) to see the 
outstanding documentary about Jean-Michel Basquiat, "The Radiant Child," 
by director Tamra Davis.

Please join us on Tuesday, March 19 at 4:30 p.m. in the Super Maple 

Here's what the L.A. Times reviewer said about the film:

    /"Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child" is a remarkably rich
    documentary possessing depth, range, insight and compassion.
    Basquiat was born into an upper middle-class Brooklyn family.
    Although intermittently felled by psychiatric problems, his mother
    exposed him to great museum art an early age. By 17, Basquiat found
    refuge in the teeming lower Manhattan art and club scene of the
    early '80s, and was nudged from graffiti artist to a full-fledged
    painter who could "paint with words."/

Feel free to share this announcement with any other students and 
colleagues who may be interested. There's room for many! Bring your 
class. Bring your friends.
