Town Hall shares ‘Moving Portraits’

Members of the community took over the Great Barrington Town Hall on April 26 — well, their portraits anyway.

People all over the Berkshires were showcased in their element on the building’s walls, ceilings and doors. The video installations were part of a gallery-style exhibition called, “Moving Portraits.” The slow-motion video exhibit was presented by Daniel’s Art Party, which is part of Bard College at Simon’s Rock, and was created by Ken Roht. He moved to the area from Los Angeles last year and now serves as the artistic director of Daniel’s Art Party.

“Daniel’s Art Party is a festival of individual offerings, but it’s also a single, interconnected theatrical expression investigating the beauty, humor, strength, and resilience of communities coming together to create a more enlightened and empowered whole,” said Roht.

Moving portraits features the cinematography of Jack Obrock. The idea of the exhibit was to provide progressive multimedia explorations that engage the community, said Roht.
