Come check out New York artist Laylah Ali on October 24th!

This Thursday afternoon at 5:15 painter Laylah Ali will be giving an Artist's Talk at the Johnson Museum. Ali, born and raised in Buffalo, NY and now a professor of art at Williams College, is best known for her Greenheads series, which depicts figures of "indeterminate gender, age, and race" and explores the capacity of the human body to communicate thoughts without certain body parts, such as arms and legs. Over forty of these paintings  are currently on display in the Johnson's Bartels Gallery. The exhibit closes December 22nd.

And as you may or may not know, Ithaca is celebrating its second annual Silent Movie Month which is a reference to Ithaca's past contributions to the silent film industry. To celebrate, there will be a screening of the film comedy Steamboat Bill Jr, at Cinemapolis at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 27. There will also be a Halloween showing of the 1942 Austrian horror film, Hands of Orlac, with live musical accompaniment on Oct. 31 at 8 p.m. at Cornell's Sage Chapel.
