SMF3 Closing party!
October 22, 2004
8pm

Buddy / High School / Heaven
1542- 1550 N Milwaukee Ave 2nd /3rd floors
Join us for our last evening of SMF3 exhibitions, screenings and
performances. Guaranteed to please. We are featuring a remixed and recently added line-up of work. Details below.

Special Screening of Barnstormers videos:
High School (1542 N Milwaukee 3rd Floor)
9pm

The Barnstormers are a collective of New York artists who create large-scale collaborative paintings, films and performances. The group formed in 1999 after a pilgrimage to the rural town of Cameron, North Carolina. During the trip, twenty-five artists painted dozens of barns, tractor-trailers, and shacks. Consequently, the tiny tobacco farming community became the unlikely Mecca for the urban collective. The Barnstormers continue to interpret and communicate the visual, cultural, and spiritual awakenings inspired by their trips to the south.

The Chicago premier of their video Letter to the Prez and the Gasbook
feature Apostrophe will screen from 9-10:30pm at High School. And hopefully weather permitting on the roof of heaven.
