A Short History of Color Lecture Series

The National Gallery of Art opens a new lecture series this weekend — a Short History of Color Lecture Series begins with Film Color before 1928.

Sunday's 2 p.m. lecture by Charles O'Brien, School for Studies in Art and Culture, Carleton University, Ottawa, will be followed by screenings of short films Fireworks, A Little Jules Verne, Metamorphoses and The Witches Cave, along with hand-painted shorts by George Méliès (who I love) and a restored print of The Londale Operator from 1911.

The second lecture, Technicolor on Location: Unreality in the Great Outdoors, is on June 14 at 2 p.m., and the third, Technical Theater: The Musical, is on June 21 at 2 p.m.
