"Search For Heroic Beings" Art Show and Reception
Connected to "The Golem"

The Teaneck Festival of Arts, co-sponsor of "The Golem" screening with orchestral accompaniment at The Teaneck International Film Festival on Nov 15th, is presenting a related art show, "The Search for Heroic Beings" which will be on display at the Teaneck Public Library for the month of November.

The Art Show will consist of more than a dozen adult visual artists’ interpretation of the theme, along with masks created by 5th and 6th graders at Teaneck’s Community Charter School headed by Master Mask Maker from Teaneck - Howard Berelson - who worked with the students in Ms. Beverly Cooper’s art classes.

A Meet the Artists Reception co-sponsored by the Teaneck Public Library with the unveiling of an Art Video created by Film Editor Liz Celotto, based on the display, will be held in the Library Auditorium on Sunday, November 2nd from 3-5 pm. In addition, a special arts partnership has been formed with characters from WINTUK by Cirque du Soleil that will come decked out in the wintry colors of WINTUK which opens soon at Madison Square Garden's WAMU Theatre. Participants at the reception will have a chance to win a Family Four Pack of tickets to one of their upcoming shows. The quartet of joyful ambassadors will be a feast for the eyes and will stilt-walk, play, and clown their way into the hearts of young and old alike. (see photo enclosed)
