The Stephen F. Austin State University School of Art and the Friends of the Visual Arts will present a free, one-night screening of "In the Realms of the Unreal" at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 5, in The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House in downtown Nacogdoches.
For more than 60 years, obscure janitor and outsider artist Henry Darger created a massive literary and graphic body of work, including "In the Realms of the Unreal," a 15,000-page novel with hundreds of paintings that recounts the wars between nations on an enormous unnamed planet. His work was discovered posthumously.
This screening is part of the School of Art's monthly Friday Night Film Series and is sponsored in part by the Nacogdoches Junior Forum. The Cole Art Center is located at 329 E. Main St.
For more information, call (936) 468-1131. The film is unrated, but some aspects of it may not be appropriate for young children.
