PLASTIC MAN: the Artful Life of Jerry Ross Barrish, Film Screening With Discussion
Meet the artist and the makers from the film: PLASTIC MAN: the artful life of Jerry Ross Barrish. A fifth generation San Franciscan, Barrish was the product of an environment with little appreciation for the arts. His hardworking parents were boxing enthusiasts vaguely connected to the mob. It was these connections that got him started in the bail bonds business. Then he broke the mold, stepping-up to become the bailout guy for 1960’s protesters. Inspired by the times, he changed course in mid-life launching himself as a sculptor and filmmaker. Participants will be given a link to the film one week ahead of the class to view on their own time. Film director, William Farley, producer Janis Plotkin will join Barrish in his art studio for a post-screening conversation
