Summer American Art Film Series at MMofA
This summer the Mobile Museum of Art hosts a free Sunday afternoon series of art documentaries that explore the mind and mechanics of creation. Pulling from a selection of both well-known and hidden gems of the profuse documentary genre, we invite you to come cool down with a smart film and picnic in our air conditioned auditorium. We provide the popcorn, bring your own libations for a relaxing summer habit that’s sure to inspire.

The Cool School – How LA Learned to Love Modern Art. A lesson in how a few renegade artists built an art scene from scratch.
From 1957 to 1966, the Ferus Gallery was the catalyst of modern art in Los Angeles. Launching the careers of luminaries like Warhol, Ruscha and Lichtenstein, Ferus built an art scene from scratch and transformed the cultural climate of the West Coast. It was directed by Morgan Neville and narrated by Jeff Bridges.
