'Museum Without Walls'

By GLORIA JANE SMITH
Do you ever feel cheated after
visiting an art museum? The
exhibits were good, but sparce-.
Why couldn't they include more
of Picasso (my usual complaint)
or more of the Impressionists
of the Pre-Renaissance period?
A valuable museum supplement
-- happening right on this cam-
pus - finds itself in a series of
eleven films on artists and re-
lated subjects which creates a
unique museumi on film, appro-.
priately entitled "Museum With-
out Walls."'
The series, jointly sponsored
by the University's Exeson
Service and College of Architec-
ture and Design, began last week
and is scheduled to continue on
Monday and Thursday evenings
during the next three weeks-.
I sampled the series Monday
evening - sitting in the midst of
a crowd of over eight hundred
to view "Giotto and the Pre-
Renaissance" and "Crete and
Itcewas truly an enjoyable two
hours.
Giotto is an artist recognized
in his lifetime as the greatest
cursor t tose fro Baesoccio to-
Michelangelo.
The film contrasts the hiera-
tic mood of Giotto's predecessors
to his great innovations in sensi-
ativity and human involvement -
eChrist, St. Francis of Assisi and

Bolshoi Ballet, under the auspices of the University Musical Society.

others were suddenly presented
by Giotto in very humanistic
terms.
Giotto initiated a real and
tangible space, gave weight and
material existence to his figures
and an abstract order and equil-
ibrium to his compositions.
uiding us through such mon-
and Lower Church of San Fran-
cesco, Assisi, and the Scroveg-
ni family Arena Chapel in Padua,
the film uses various techniques
to emphasize their awesome
massiveness and beauty.
As the camera panned from
mnountain ridge to lowland plain
and moved from mural to mural
while narrator Richard Base-
hart related the life stories of
Christ and St. Francis. I felt as
if I were there - as if this real-
ly wasn't a movie at all, but an
experiential journey.
The background music, which
included guitar and piano pieces
and the screams of the anguish-
ed thenhancd the general mood
Both films, produced by U.ni-
versal Studios, will be shown
again on Thursday evening in

is;" "The Impressionists," "Le
Corbusier," "The Greek 'em-
pie," "The Cubist Epoch," and
"Germany: Dada."
Last week the series featured
"Picasso: War, Peace and Love"
and "Goya."
The series has been p u r-
chased by the sponsors, and they
speculate that it will be shown
again either later this term or
early next year.
However, don't use that as an
excuse to miss any of. the films
this first time around.
Tickets for the series may be
purchased either at the door- or
at the Rackham box office at
$2.50 for adults and $1.50 for stu-
dents.
