        Fredrick Wiseman's National Gallery

           Wiseman's film takes the audience behind the scenes of a London institution, on a journey to the heart of a museum inhabited by masterpieces of Western art from the Middle Ages to the 19th Century. "Among this movie's many attractions is the extraordinary geometry of looks that Mr. Wiseman traces as he draws lines among the people in the paintings, the people looking at the paintings and, of course, you, the movie viewer." - Manohla Dargis, New York Times.  National Gallery is the portrait of a place, its way of working and relations with the world, its staff and public, and its paintings. In a perpetual and dizzying game of mirrors, film watches painting watches film.

Stinson, who is curating the evening of entertainment, will be joined by Rhett Miller, lead singer of the Old 97's; rock singer-songwriter Elvis Perkins; Jesse Malin; his pop-singer daughter Ruby Stinson; and other surprise guests. 

The evening follows up the huge success of 2013's "Home Bass: 4 Strings, 4 Hearts for Habitat," which featured Stinson as well as fellow Hudson four-string players, including cellist Melora Creager and bassists Meshell Ndegeocello and Melissa auf der Maur, who is a member of Habitat's Board of Directors.
