MC Richards: The Fire Within
Thursday, February 8th at 6 pm
Blowing Rock Art & History Museum
In the film, we witness M.C. Richards
engaging in contemplative questioning regarding the nature of art,
imagination, wholeness, community, and our place in the cosmos. She
inspires us to live creatively, to believe in ourselves, to experience the

of our quests to become authentic creators of art and community.
