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 Ballroom.

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.

Warm regards,
