Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art, with the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers, brings in contemporary filmmakers to meet with students and museum guests for a special screening of their films. "Art of the Prank" will be screening on Sept.1 at 5 p.m.  “Art of the Prank” is an emotional and humorous journey following the evolution of artist Joey Skaggs, a fierce proponent of independent thinking and the man who has turned the media hoax into an art form. Filmmaker Andrea Marini interweaves fascinating archival footage with a singular and unforgettable moment- when Skaggs decides to pull off the most demanding hoax of his career, setting his sights on film festivals to do it. Skaggs is famed for media fictions and is one of America’s most notorious sociopolitical satirists and media activists.

More films will be shown throughout the semester. For more information and to view film trailers in this series, visit the website. Registration is encouraged but not required.
