Villa of Mysteries - Ruby Neri /The Real Art Hangers of Cheviot Hills - Paul Gellman

Artists Ruby Neri and Paul Gellman who have collaborated on numerous projects came together to transform LAMOA into a stage for the theatric performance of The Real Art Hangers of Cheviot Hills, a one-act play written by Paul Gellman and performed by a cast that includes both artists and a group of amateur actors. The set is defined by Ruby Neri's murals titled The Villa of Mysteries, inspired by the famous ancient Roman frescos which are widely believed to show the initiation of a young woman into a Graeco Roman mystery cult. The murals are painted on canvas sheets attached to both the inside and the outside of the building.

The performance will be on Sunday, May 1st 2016 starting at 3pm 
The mural will be on view until the end of May
