Screening Friday April 29, Art Museum of South Texas

I am thrilled to be screening TV FAMILY at the Art Museum of South Texas this Friday. When I was growing up nearby in Port Aransas, the annual Christmas Tree Forest was held there. When I moved back to south Texas after graduate school (and after acquiring a healthy appreciation of modern architecture) I became a genuine fan of the building--especially once I learned that not only was it designed by Philip Johnson, but that Andy Warhol had shown up at the opening taking pictures of everyone with his Polaroid. I have enjoyed taking part in the filmmaker screenings there over the years, and am excited and humbled to now being showing my film in the auditorium. When I was in Athens, GA as a Peabody Fellow in fall 2015, I found a documentary on Philip Johnson in the archive. Best of all, there was a clip of the Art Museum of South Texas, circa 1976, in it. Here's that clip:
