The Christmas Classics Movie Series kicks off on November 30th at 7:00 pm with the first presentation: Elf!
Buddy (Will Ferrell) is different from all of Santa’s other elves. He’s a “cotton-headed ninny muggins” when it comes to making toys, he’s six-foot-three, and – the real clincher- he’s human!

Bring the whole family to enjoy free popcorn, hot chocolate, and a Christmas classic of a film!

Topics that captivate Dan Mills include cartography and other systems of visualizing and codifying information, history and current events, satire and humor. He began to incorporate collage, and with it maps, into his work in the early 1990s. The catalyst for this was the quincentennial of the event euphemistically referred to as The First Encounter, or The Discovery of the New World, When Columbus Discovered America, among other things, and wanting to explore history rather than stories. Since that time, he has made work about history and colonization in painting/collages on large roll-down school maps, US imperialism by creating an atlas reconfiguring the world, and more recently, he has been using maps as a space to visualize data about current wars and conflicts. Mills works in various media including painting, collage, mixed media, and sculptural installations.
