Judith G. Levy's "NV in KC" (2013) (48 minutes) will be screened at 7 p.m. Sept. 5 (Thursday) in Epperson Auditorium, which is located in Vanderslice Hall on the KCAI campus. The event, sponsored by the H&R Block Artspace, is free and open to the public.
"NV in KC: A Story About Artists and Envy in Kansas City," is Levy’s humorous and probing film set in the vibrant art world of present-day Kansas City. Well-known local performers, such as Jaimie Warren, Shannon Michalski, De De DeVille and Erin McGrane, appear alongside notable arts leaders, such as Julian Zugazagoitia, Raechell Smith and Sherry Leedy, in this diary-like tale about fictional artist Lee J. Ross and her artist friends as they struggle with Ross’s conceptual art project about envy. Music is by Ssion, Kirstin Paludan and Jeff Freling.
