Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists will screen on the campus of California State University Sacramento on Thursday, December 4th.
CSU Sacramento holds a special place in the history of the Chicago Imagists. Jim Nutt and Gladys Nilsson lived in Sacramento from 1968 through 1976, where Nutt was a member of the CSUS faculty and Nilsson also taught. Karl Wirsum was also on the CSUS faculty between 1971 and 1973. Although the artists' time in Sacramento was relatively brief, their teaching and shows at local galleries including the Candy Store Gallery in Folsom, made a lasting impact on the area's art scene.
