“Bending Lines” Regional Filmakers Spotlight

6:00pm

Join directors Allison Bohl DeHart and Peter DeHart for a Q&A screening of “Bending Lines” at RFC’s Regional Filmmakers Spotlight. Nearing the end of his life, Lafayette-based sculptor Robert Wiggs looks back on a lifelong obsession with patterns. Never formally trained in mathematics, Wiggs studied mud cracks, beehives, and tree bark to create a geometric system that rivals the work of academic mathematicians, a system which he expressed and explored in scores of sculptures.
