"Humor" Monday, January 28 ... 12:00-1:30 pm. at The Rowayton Library, 33 Highland Avenue, Rowayton, CT 06853. How do artists use irony, goofiness, satire and sarcasm in their work? Can an artwork be fun and critical at the same time? Do contemporary artists always take themselves seriously? "Humor" explores these questions through the work of Charles Atlas, Eleanor Antin, Raymond Pettibon, Elizabeth Murray and Walton Ford. The free screening of "Humor" includes a "brown bag" lunch, refreshments, a craft and discussion. During the past decade, Art21 has established itself as the preeminent chronicler of contemporary art and artists through its Peabody Award-winning biennial television series, "Art in the Twenty-First Century." The nonprofit organization has used the power of digital media to introduce millions of people of all ages to contemporary art and artists and has created a new paradigm for teaching and learning about the creative process.
