Westbeth—Home of the Arts: A Film Screening

Part of the Encore Program Series. Miss it the first time around? You’ll receive preference for this event!

Join filmmaker George Cominskie at a screening of Westbeth—Home to the Arts, a documentary selected for the 2011 Manhattan Film Festival. The film explores the unique history of the recently landmarked Westbeth Artists Residence in the Far West Village. Westbeth was created in 1970 as affordable housing for artists by the J.M. Kaplan Fund and the National Endowment for the Arts. This intimate film shows how Westbeth revitalized the arts in a changing Greenwich Village and demonstrates why every large city around the world should have its own Westbeth.
