We asked SVA students and faculty to send in work they were creating over the summer. Below is one in an occasional series of Summer Session posts.
Faculty member Richard Grayson (BFA FIlm, Video and Animation; Humanities and Sciences; and BFA Photography departments) has his essay “The Forgotten Movie Screens of Broward County” included in the new anthology Life As We Show It: Writing on Film (City Lights, 2009), which was edited by Brian Pera and Masha Tupitsyn.
Grayson’s piece is a personal tour of several defunct movie theaters in the Florida county, interspersing historical facts about the theaters with memories of the author’s past. The essay was excerpted for the online magazine The Rumpus and is available here. Grayson will also be participating in a Life As We Show It reading event on Monday, August 3, 7pm, at McNally Jackson Books, 52 Prince Street.
