CLC International Film Series Featuring The Square
College of Lake County Room C105 on the Grayslake Campus.
19351 W. Washington St.
Grayslake, IL 60030
Voice: 847.543.2623
Ruben Ostlund, writer-director of previous film “Force Majeure,” once again satirizes the fragile male ego, but with a more ambitious scope: the world of modern art. On the verge of announcing a new installation meant to foster urban empathy, a director becomes over-invested in personally catching the thieves who stole his wallet. A disastrous marketing campaign launches in his absence, while other exhibits fail in spectacular fashion. The film was the Palme d’Or winner at the Cannes Film Festival. The AV Club said, “Withering insights… impeccable farce…can execute a gag with steel-trap precision. The museum itself is an absurdist goldmine, facilitating jokes worthy of Jacques Tati.”

Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods
21850 N. Riverwoods Rd.
Riverwoods, IL 60015
Voice: 224.633.2424
A Word from the Artist:
I am astonished by the improbable beauty and enduring mystery of birds.

Birds are miraculous. A European Swift can eat, sleep, and molt on the wing while staying aloft for nearly a year. Bar-tailed Godwits can fly nonstop from Alaska to New Zealand, more than seven thousand miles, in nine days. A Wandering Albatross can glide on its ten-foot wing span, without a wing beat, for five hundred miles. Thick-billed Murres can dive underwater to a depth of seven hundred feet. And, to open nuts they want to eat, Crows use cars as their personal nutcrackers, dropping nuts on the road for cars to crush. To further illustrate their cleverness, and maybe their playfulness, one Crow has been seen sledding down a snowy roof on a plastic lid, then carrying the lid in its beak to the top of the roof to sled down again.

Patton Oswalt at the Genesee Theatre

Voice: 800.982.2787
Award-winning comedian and actor Patton Oswalt is best known for his lovable, nerdy roles on TV and the big screen – from sitcoms to comedy-dramas to animated movies. In 2013, he earned a TV Critics Choice Award for his performance on Parks and Recreation.

But the hilarious funnyman really shines when he's on stage doing stand-up. He's produced five critically-acclaimed comedy albums and shot seven TV specials, winning an Emmy and a Grammy® Award for Patton Oswalt: Talking for Clapping.

The multi-talented performer has lent his voice to video games, appeared in music videos and even authored two New York Times best sellers. Is there anything this man can't do? One website says he's allergic to gluten. So, apparently, he can't do bread.

Edgy, provocative and hilarious, Penn & Teller have defied labels - and sometimes good taste - with their brand of impossible illusions and oddball humor. On stage, they look the most unlikely pairing - Penn is large and boisterous while Teller is diminutive and silent. But that's part of their charm. Their inventive, seemingly dangerous illusions, brilliant slight-of-hand and amusing shtick have made Penn & Teller a household name for nearly 40 years.

Art Exhibition: Head in the Trees
Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods
21850 N. Riverwoods Rd.
Riverwoods, IL 60015
Voice: 224.633
In Head in the Trees, artist Kaye Buchman addresses themes relating to the natural forces and regenerative energies found in our physical environment and the vital stories they tell. Her large scale drawings and mixed-media paintings begin with watercolor under-paintings and spills inspired by algae blooms overlaid with intricate pen & ink drawings. Her inspiration was found in the quiet presence of Ryerson Woods, the lively water currents of Lake Michigan, and the otherworldly qualities of southern Illinois' Shawnee National Forest.

While researching native plant and tree colonies, migratory bird routes, and water currents for this series of work, Buchman was drawn to the life-affirming relationships that exist amongst these ecosystems and the messages they convey about our inter-connectedness. She was also been reminded of the importance of natural spaces for igniting imaginative thought and creative action. With a nod to fairytales and myths, and the potency of the whole of nature as an enduring metaphor, her goal is to bring attention to the intrinsic power of our natural environment and the responsibility we all share in ensuring its survival.

A Retrospective on the Caricatures of Native Son Frank Willmarth
Barrington History Museum
212 W. Main Street
Barrington, IL 60010
Voice: 847.381.1730
Frank “Pancho” Willmarth was born right here in Barrington in 1906. After attending the University of Missouri as a journalism major and writing for a humorous newspaper during his time at the university, Frank headed west with hopes of pursuing a career where he could put his artistic talent to use. His travels took him all over the United States where he would sketch the people and the places that surrounded him where ever he was.

The first sketch he sold was after a football game in Salt Lake City, when his date never showed up he decided to sketch various aspects of the game and sold them to a local newspaper for a dollar. He was now a paid artist…. Frank’s true success would be realized in California.

Though still travelling throughout the state to sketch caricatures at fairs, carnivals, vacation spots and college campuses, his first major opportunity came in Los Angeles. Frank was a very kind and likeable man who got along with most people he met his sense of humor was contagious. This incidentally led to a great many connections, and an opportunity was given to Frank to sketch the who’s who in Hollywood for the Brown Derby Restaurant.

The Derby’s walls were lined with sketches of famous celebrities that would frequent the restaurant during the golden age of Hollywood. A great deal of the Brown Derby’s caricatures were done by Frank himself, which allowed him to meet some of the nation’s biggest stars.

His first job for the derby was to sketch Mae West and Rocky Marciano. Later on in his career he would be hired by the San Francisco Press club to sketch the club’s many guests who were not only Hollywood celebrities, but foreign diplomats, U.S. presidents, famous authors, and the occasional astronaut or FBI agent. Frank had the opportunity to get to know some of the world’s greatest individuals.

After an amazingly interesting career, Frank would eventually settle down with his wife Gertrude and their four children in an old mining town in Sierra County called Downieville where Frank was a columnist writing humorous articles for the Mountain Messenger, a local newspaper. Frank lived out the rest of his days surrounded by his loving family and comforted by the memories and remarkable stories he had accumulated throughout his 96 years on Earth. Frank died in 2002 but this exhibit aims at resurrecting the man known as “Pancho”.

While we may be ready for signs of spring, Volo Bog is still offering signs of winter activity. Deer tracks, rabbit scat & the meandering footprints of raccoons all reveal activity in Volo Bog. Peeking through the snow, carnivorous pitcher plants begin to show signs of greening with the lengthing days.
