SPRINGVILLE — Summer programs at Springville Center for the Arts will come to a conclusion on Saturday, Aug. 17, with a number of arts events ground into one evening. The program begins with a children’s art reception at Arts Underground, located at 66 East Main St., at 6 p.m. Students in grades 3 – 8 worked with a variety of artists to create paintings, sculptural designs of the arts center, baskets and more, that will be on display. Refreshments will be provided.
At 7 p.m., the event will move to the main theater space, as the SCA Summer Theater interns will perform “Louder, I Can’t Hear You,” written by Bill Gleason. This is the final event featuring the five performers and educators who came to Springville from a variety of colleges, to work with area youth. The show is a family-appropriate short comedy about listening.
The performance will be followed by a screening of a short film, made by the film camp that stars the interns and Julie Noeson. Several short animations from the Stop Motion & Sound Design camps will be screened, as well.
The program will culminate in an 8 p.m. screening of “The Cameraman,” starring Buster Keaton as a clumsy cameraman trying to gain the affection of a woman working at MGM studios. The 1928 silent film will feature live accompaniment by Robert Bruce, an international touring artist with numerous publications and recordings. The admission price is payable at the door.
These programs are through a partnership with Springville Youth Incorporated, sponsored by M&T Bank and New York State Council on the Arts.
