Tonight at 6pm is the opening reception of Motion Pictured, an exhibition of images and objects that personify the timeless activity of movement/motion in still visual art forms. The exhibit is exhibit co-hosted by @davinciartalliance to celebrate the anniversary of our film program's rebirth as @LightboxFilmCenter. From the perspective of traditionally static media (painting, printmaking, photography, and the like), the representation of movement has challenged artists throughout history. However, the birth of cinematography in the mid-19th Century marked a monumental turning point in how visual artists addressed movement in their work.

In the evening, the Count asks him to write three post-dated letters, two (dated June 12 and 19) about his impending departure for home and another (dated June 29), stating that he has just left the castle. Jonathan writes in his journal, “I know now the span of my life. God help me!” *The novel, Dracula, is comprised of journal entries and letters, all dated, so throughout the year, we’ll be posting a day-by-day account of the plot of Dracula.
