"Getting Down to Work: Learning about feelings, creativity, and emotional muscle through the work of Gene Kelly" with
Kerry Kelly Novick
Everyone’s life is multidetermined, with influences from many sources, including cultural forces and the arts. As the daughter of Gene Kelly, Kerry Kelly Novick grew up with unique access to his creative process. In this evening of film clips and personal stories, she will engage the audience in a dialogue about the interactions of art and life and the links to psychoanalytic ideas about feelings and fantasy illustrated in some of the classic films.
A book signing will follow.
