There’s very little more diverting than cat videos, and considering what’s happened in the past week, I think we all need something to take our minds off it all.
Today and Tuesday, if you happen to be in Little Rock, you can head to the Arkansas Arts Center for a screening of the final Internet Cat Video Festival curated by the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. The one today is at 2 p.m., and the Pulaski County Humane Society will be on-site with adoptable cats and dogs from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Admission is $5, or free for Arts Center members or those who contribute to the supply drive new or gently used:
- Purina Brand foods—Dog Chow, Puppy Chow, Cat Chow, Kitten Chow
- Kong and interactive toys, stuffed toys (no beads)
- Chew toys—no rope toys
- Collars—dog and cat, all sizes
- Zipper bags, all sizes
- Bath towels
- Hand sanitizer
- Copy paper (white)
Tuesday will have two screenings, one at 2 p.m., and the other at 6:30 p.m. as part of its Art After Hours program, following a 6 p.m. reception. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it to any of the screenings, so will have to make do with an afternoon of YouTube while working on my column and other things that need my attention. 😦
After Little Rock, five more sites will host screenings, so if you want to try to make it out to one, here are the dates.
- July 13-15, Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, St. Louis
- July 30, Osceola Public Library, Osceola, Wis.
- August 6, Myriad Gardens, Oklahoma City
- August 20, Farnsworth Art Museum, Rockland, Maine
- August 24, Video Association of Dallas, Dallas, Texas
And if you can’t make it out, don’t worry. Internet kitties are always there for you.
