TAN: "My Kid Could Paint That"

Thursday Art Night is next Thursday, February 24th.  This month we will be showing a film that a lot of you have   probably heard about. "My Kid Could Paint That" is the story of 4-year-old Marla Olmstead, an  artist who became internationally renowned after selling over $300,000.00 worth of paintings.  While Marla received a lot of attention for her work, making her way onto TV shows like Inside Edition and The Today Show, not all the attention was positive. Eventually the media began to speculate that the paintings were actually painted by her father, himself a budding artist. In this film, the Olmsteads seek to clear their name while the filmmaker attempts to retain his journalistic integrity as he investigates this story.

The evening will begin at 6:30, with storytelling. The storytelling theme is "And They Lived Happily Ever After: Tales of Love." The film will start at 7:00. After the film, you can dance you heart out with DJ Stacks, who will be spinning music for an hour after the film.

Ticket proceeds will benefit the Baker Art Guild.
