The heart and soul of Bethlehem Steel, The Hoover Mason Trestle, is the closest you can get to the crucible of iron and steel making in America. Bethlehem Steel Corporation was a pioneer in steel production. Steel produced by Bethlehem Steel was used in the construction of some of American's greatest landmarks -- Golden Gate Bridge, George Washington Bridge, and the Chrysler Building in New York City. Additionally, structural members of the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and the Hoover Dam, were made by Bethlehem Steel. While similar to the Highline in NYC, the Hoover Mason Trestle stands apart because it offers the only view into the American iron and steel industry, with platforms built at key vantage points that illustrate the magnitude of 100-ton fly wheels, huge ore cars and immense blast furnaces. While the furnaces sit idle today, the site has been reclaimed and visitors enjoy fabulous vistas of South Bethlehem, South Mountain, and St. Michael’s Cemetery which was captured in the famous photograph by Walker Evans in the 1930’s.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

**All screenings include performances from the One from the Vaults & Sweet Translucent Dreams shadowcasts, and contain strong adult material!**

This low-budget freak show/cult classic/cultural institution concerns the misadventures of Brad Majors (Bostwick) and Janet Weiss (Sarandon) inside a strange mansion that they come across on a rainy night. The owner of this house is a transvestite clad in lingerie, Dr. Frank N. Furter (Curry), a mad scientist who claims to be from another planet.

But seriously, do you need a description? It’s ROCKY HORROR! THE cult classic... there is no other film quite like Rocky Horror and there never will be. This timeless film is best screened late and we’re more than happy to bring this tradition back to the Lehigh Valley every last Friday of the month, with extra screenings every October!

Costumes are encouraged, and so are props, with a BIG exception: squirt guns or water props are not allowed.

Open Critique
Thursday, December 7
6:30PM - 9:00PM
1 Day
Price $5 | $4 ArtsQuest Members

“As artists, we also need a second (or third) “set of eyes” on our work. We need to know how our work can be improved. We need to understand how our work is perceived by our audience – the viewer. Sometimes we can spot issues on our own, but most times we need input from others. This is where critique becomes an important part of our development as artists.” –Matt Fussel, The Importance of Critique The Artist Collective Open Crit is a quarterly critique event where visual artists of all mediums are invited to bring new and/or in-progress work for critical feedback and group discussion, facilitated by an educator or artist experienced in group-critique. For our first Open Crit, Lehigh University Chair of the Art, Architecture and Design department and Digital Photography, Experimental Animation and Video Professor Anna Chupa will be on hand to lead the discussion. Visual artists and art enthusiasts are welcome to join in this event, constructive input during the critiques is encouraged from everyone present. Participating artists are asked to be open to constructive criticism and feedback given by the group, which should always be done in a supportive and respectful manner, but could at the same time be challenging for the artist. There will be time for roughly six critiques, and artists interested in being reviewed should sign up in advance with Hillary Harper at hharper@artsquest.org.

1989, Rated PG-13, Running Time: 1 hr 37 min

Directed by Jeremiah S. Chechik
Starring Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo, Randy Quaid

"You couldn't hear a dump truck driving through a nitroglycerin plant."

As the holidays approach, Clark Griswold (Chase) wants to have a perfect family Christmas, so he pesters his wife, Ellen (D'Angelo), and children, as he tries to make sure everything is in line, including the tree and house decorations. However, things go awry quickly. His hick cousin, Eddie (Quaid), and his family show up unplanned and start living in their camper on the Griswold property. Even worse, Clark's employers renege on the holiday bonus he needs.

W18-Drawing Realistically
Thursdays, 2/15 - 3/22
6:30PM - 9:30PM
(6 weeks)
Price: $190 | $171 ArtsQuest Members

This course is designed to teach students how to create a three-dimensional image on a two-dimensional surface.  This is achieved through a drawing method known as Chiaroscuro, which uses lights and darks to create form.  Students will learn to recognize the effect of light on four basic forms - the sphere, cylinder, cone and cube. All other subjects begin using one or more of these forms.  The ensuing drawings may be done from life and/or from photos, and may incorporate the use of a grid to help achieve accuracy.  Artists with all levels of experience are welcome in this class; everyone can benefit from learning this method. All materials are included with this course. This class is for students aged 17 and older.

“Everybody has at least one favorite recollection from the childhood. It was an event that involved our family, friends, pets, an event that has changed our lives, helped us to become who we are.  Let’s bring those moment to live in animation.” – Maciek Albrecht You don’t have to be an animator, or an artist to tell a story. What you need is imagination, basic art skills and confidence you can create a work of art. Animator and Director Maciek Albrecht will guide you through animation production steps, such as story development, voice recording, character design and artworks, and finally, the basics of animation. At the end of the class, participants will have a completed one-minute animation, which will be shown during a film screening, open to family and friends. All materials are included, but students are welcome to bring their own iPad if they wish.

Wool Beads
Sunday, 3/18
1:00 - 4:00 PM
1 Day
Price $60 | ArtsQuest Member Price $54

In this one day workshop, we will use wet felting to create two different types of wool beads. Wet felting is a process where wool, warm water, soap, and agitation are combined to create felt. We will produce basic round beads as well as sushi style beads. These beads can later be strung to create beautiful soft jewelry or be used as embellishments. Students will use wet felting to create round and sushi style beads. We will start class with an overview of felting, types of wool, and basic process. Then, students will choose a few colors and be shown the process of creating round beads. Once they have created a few round beads, they will then layer fiber to create a cross bat and saturate it with warm, soapy water. Next, they will tightly roll up their bat and felt it as a roll. Finally, the sushi-style beads will be cut and laid out to air dry.
