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 parents were boxing enthusiasts vaguely connected to the mob. It was this situation that got him started in the bail bonds business. Then he broke the mold, stepping-up to become the bailout guy for 1960’s protestors. 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 a week ahead of the class to view. Film director, William Farley and producer Janis Plotkin will join Barrish in his art studio for a post-screening conversation. Janis Plotkin leads this course on Tuesday October 19 from 1:00 - 3:00 pm. Preregistration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the study group will be e-mailed prior to the first session.
