Film Premiere – America Rising: The Arts of the Gilded Age (2016)

October 19, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Local filmmakers Michael Maglaras and Terri Templeton return to NCC to present their brilliant new film (their seventh in 10 years), “America Rising: The Arts of the Gilded Age.”

This screening will take place in the PepsiCo Theater and is free and open to the public.

Another of their wonderful “essays in film,” this one focuses on the arts of the American Renaissance, the time between the end of the Civil War and the first decade of the 20th Century that Mark Twain so famously referred to as “The Gilded Age.”

“After the Civil War, American art [really] came into [its] own on the world stage. In painting, in sculpture, in architecture, in music, [and in literature], America found its voice and its artistic soul,” thanks to artists such as Mark Twain, John Singer Sargent, Childe Hassam, Winslow Homer, Alfred Stieglitz, and August Saint-Gaudens.

Don’t miss the chance to see the work of these great artists, showcased in this extraordinary film. You will also have the opportunity to meet and to speak with the film’s producer, writer and director!
