The Kingsborough Art Museum (KAM) is pleased to announce that this year's Rarebit Animation Festival will be taking place virtually this Thursday evening, June 17, at 7:00 pm. Curated by Kingsborough Animation professor Tom Eaton, the annual Rarebit Festival showcases short animated films created by students from Kingsborough and across CUNY. The name of the festival is a nod to the cartoonist and animator Winsor McCay, a former resident of Sheepshead Bay and creator of the imaginative comic strips Dream of the Rarebit Fiend and Little Nemo in Slumberland.

Advanced registration is required:

Your page if filled with beautiful art. With many museums having been closed during corona virus, I have been looking for ways to stay involved in the art community and have been doing so through film. I’ve recently taken a liking to photo realist artwork. While in quarantine, I came across a streaming platform called Film Festival Flix. This platform offers a bunch of films and film collections that can be streamed from home, and it is hosting virtual film festivals. I was able to watch a documentary called “Queen of Heart: Audrey Flack”. It told the amazing story about the life of photo realist artist and feminist Audrey Flack. Film Festival Flix offers a bunch of similar artistic films that can be streamed anytime. I believe Film Festival Flix is a great place to expand your appreciation of art.
