Cottage Enrichment is a progressive Preschool/Kindergarten known for its extraordinary Art Work.  Art projects are taught one-on-one  so that each child has the opportunity to discover their own inner artist, rather than being influenced by their classmates.  As well, the teacher’s final project is not shown to the students until they have each completed their own project, only the tools and how to use the tools are part of the introduction.  After all of the students have completed, an “Art Show” ensues!  The ooos and ahhhs are genuine as each artist discovers how his artist friend created using the same tools!

40 – Echo Park Film Center – 1200 N Alvarado Street

Sidewalk CHalk Art Site, Film / Video

Showcasing: William E. Jones, Irwin Swirnoff, Stephen van Dyck, Rick Bahto –


Several local and visiting artists will present in-progress or recently completed works in an informal screening with brief introductions by the artists and time for discussion between each work. William E. Jones will present Joy in Repetition, a lecture / performance addressing the relationship between artists Peter Roehr and Charlotte Posenenske, and the gallerist Paul Maenz. The performance will include a selection of Roehr’s film montages, along with Jones’ own Film Montages (for Peter Roehr), an appropriated video work that also takes simple repetition as its first principle, arranging fragments of gay porn films into a musical composition at once austere and erotic. San Francisco-based Irwin Swirnoff will perform we r bodies, using his short films, still photos and creative non-fiction, Irwin creates an intimate & immediate setting where he explores sexuality, romance, longing, anguish, pain, and resilience. Stephen van Dyck’s show Customer Care airs on Los Angeles artist-run radio station KChung Radio. Through an episodic narrative of van Dyck’s own defaulted loans, debts and bills, he calls debt collectors, telemarketers and customer service agents and talks with them about each other’s personal lives. In one touching episode, a AAA agent in Dallas rings in the new year with van Dyck over the phone, wishing each other good luck in the new year for each other’s creative careers. In others, van Dyck’s curiosity and questions reveal a Costa Rican Time Warner Cable agent who has been to the jungle and seen jaguars and toucans, a cruise line booking agent who can’t afford to take vacations, and a young mother in a new city trying to make friends while her husband is fighting in Afghanistan. Rick Bahto will perhaps show Room Film, a short Super 8 film looking at his filthy bedroom.
