The Stephen F. Austin State University School of Art and the Friends of the Visual Arts will present a free, one-night screening of “Manufactured Landscapes” at 7 p.m.Friday, July 3, in The Cole Art Center at The Old Opera House in downtown Nacogdoches.



 



“Manufactured Landscapes” is the striking documentary on the world and work of renowned artist Edward Burtynsky. Internationally acclaimed for his large-scale photographs of what he describes as “manufactured landscapes” – quarries, recycling yards, factories, mines and dams – Burtynsky creates stunningly beautiful art from civilization's materials and debris, according to information found at topdocumentaryfilms.com.



The film, which runs 86 minutes, won best documentary in the 2007 Genie Awards and the 2006 Toronto Film Critics Association Awards.



 



This screening is part of the School of Art’s monthly Friday Night Film Series and is sponsored in part by the The Liberty Bell, Main Street Nacogdoches, Bill Arscott, Jill Carrington, Karon Gillespie, John Heath, David Kulhavy and Brad Maule.
