The music of George Gershwin is brought to vivid life in one of cinema’s great musicals, showing at the PMA for one night only. Gene Kelly stars as a painter living in Paris, who pals around with musicians and falls in love. This testament to the golden age of MGM musicals is a large, lavish production, rendered in bold Technicolor, and can only be truly appreciated on the big screen. An American in Paris swept the Academy Awards for 1951 and was named one of the greatest movies of all time by the American Film Institute in 1998.

Busby Berkeley’s famed choreography, Sol Polito’s camerawork—particularly those astounding overhead shots—and the extraordinary production values of Depression-era Warner Brothers are at the heart of this early and extraordinary example of the American film musical. The story takes us behind the scenes to look at the drama and glamour in the staging of a Broadway musical, and was so effective in this aim that it won raves from New York critics as well as Hollywood.

Everyone at the museums on the Maine Art Museum Trail worked incredibly hard to bring together the major exhibition Directors’ Cut: Selections from the Maine Art Museum Trail. “Spark: Arts in Action!” is a chance for them to kick back, get a little bit silly, and have some fun with art. Bates College Museum of Art and Monhegan Museum of Art and History provide activities for the July 16 event, which coincides with #ThirdThursPMA.
