Art on Screen Returns to the Bickford Theatre with Botticelli, Cezanne, Edward Hopper, and More!





Art on Screen: Botticelli, Florence, and the Medici

Wednesday, September 21, 2022 | 2 PM & 7:30 PM

Art on Screen returns for another season of captivating film screenings featuring some of the most revered artists of all time. With two screenings on Wednesdays including a new matinee time at 2 PM, we kick off the series with Botticelli, Florence, and the Medici. This season showcases Botticelli, Edward Hopper, Cézzane, and more. To see the schedule, click here.

During a time of political power struggles and brutal violence, the Renaissance Florence of Lorenzo de’ Medici was a tumultuous period that also had a burst of creative genius. One artist, more than any other, was able to capture this zeitgeist in his works, the lights and shadows of an era destined never to be forgotten: Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510). From the outset of his career under the wing of the Medici family, Botticelli asserted himself as the inventor of an ideal Beauty, which found its maximum expression in works such as The Allegory of Spring and the Birth of Venus.

Upcoming Bickford Theatre Events



Kaki King: Modern Yesterdays

Friday, Sept. 30, at 8 PM

Considered one of the most unique and influential guitarists of our time, Kaki King continues to deconstruct and redefine the role of solo instrumental artist though virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination, and boundless humanity. Her now-signature multi-media performance, both provocative and moving, uses projection mapping to present the guitar as a tool that can shape both music and video content.


Horszowski Trio

Thursday, Oct. 27, at 8 PM


“The most compelling American group to come on the scene”—The New Yorker

Described as “power players” by The Los Angeles Times, the Horszowski Trio has performed to sold-out houses and critical acclaim across the United States and around the world. For their Morris Museum debut, they will play a program that probes the depths of our humanity through three pieces including the U.S. premiere of Louis Karchin’s “Trio for violin, cello, and piano”.


i am the utterance of my name: Divining Mary Magdalene

Three Performances: Nov. 4, 5, and 6

From the creators of The Other Mozart comes a new music-theater piece about the web of clashing myths, beliefs, symbols, and decrees surrounding the life of Mary Magdalene. Playwright/performer Sylvia Milo and composer and percussionist Nathan Davis will give the World Premiere of their latest collaboration, I am the utterance of my name: Divining Mary Magdalene, which was created partially while in residence at Live Arts at the Morris Museum.


Art on Screen: Hopper: An American Love Story

Wednesday, Nov. 9, at 2 & 7:30 PM

Hopper’s work is the most recognizable art in America – popular, praised, and mysterious. Countless painters, photographers, filmmakers and musicians have been influenced by his art – but who was he, and how did a struggling illustrator create such a bounty of notable work?

This new film takes a deep look into Hopper’s art, his life, and his relationships.
