Join us for a screening of The Builder, a documentary film about friendship and the powerful way the interconnectivity of people living and moving throughout a city can help to build culture. The film centers on the art scene in Richmond, Virginia, with a focus on contractor Don Childress, who–to the surprise of many–has an incredible contemporary art collection. The one-hour long film will be followed by a panel conversation with the director Ryan Lauterio alongside artists and patrons featured in the film. Watch the trailer and learn at builderfilm.com.
RYAN LAUTERIO is co-director of The Builder, a working artist, instructor at VCU School of the Arts, and founder/director of the Shockoe Artspace. Learn more at ryanlauterio.com.
