Beautiful Losers screening at Howland Center, July 20, 6pm

Marc Schriebman pities all of the less-than-beautiful losers of the world.
*Note that Marc's only affiliation with the film is that he was standing next
to this flyer when I came upon him on the street.

Open Space is hosting a screening of the film Beautiful Losers at the Howland Cultural Center on Sunday, July 20 starting at 6pm.

Beautiful Losers Synopsis:
Beautiful Losers celebrates the spirit behind one of the most influential
cultural movements of a generation. In the early 1990's a loose-knit group of
likeminded outsiders found common ground at a little NYC storefront gallery.
Rooted in the DIY (do-it-yourself) subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip
hop & graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led.
Developing their craft with almost no influence from the "establishment" art
world, this group, and the subcultures they sprang from, have now become a
movement that has been transforming pop culture. Starring a selection of artists
who are considered leaders within this culture, Beautiful Losers focuses on the
telling of personal stories...speaking to themes of what happens when the
outside becomes "in" as it explores the creative ethos connecting these artists
and today's youth.
Seating is limited. Tickets are $8 and you can purchase them Here.
