Culture notes: Screening of southern experimental films; new Gwinnett arts leader

FILM
Screening of experimental, southern

Film Love, a series of experimental and avant-garde screenings, presents the program “Robbie Land: Floridaland and Other New 16mm Works” at 8 p.m. June 24 at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia.

The films of Atlantan Land, a Florida native, reflect a personal vision of the Southeastern environment and reimagine familiar surroundings, both natural and man-made. Four new titles on the six-film program include the 20-minute “Floridaland.” The filmmaker will introduce the films and answer questions about them.

MOCA GA is at 75 Bennett St., Suite A2. Tickets, $5. www.filmlove.org. HOWARD POUSNER

ARTS
New Gwinnett leader to organize, promote

ArtWorks! Gwinnett, a group founded in 2008 to cultivate arts opportunities in Gwinnett County, has named Sally A. Corbett as its first executive director.

Caryn McGarity, the group’s executive committee co-chair, said Corbett will lead ArtWorks in a series of new projects “that will serve the arts organizations and artists of Gwinnett County, and in turn make the community even more vibrant for area residents and our visitors.”

Corbett has worked over the last 15 years at the High Museum of Art and Emory University’s arts program. Information: www.artworksgwinnett.org. HOWARD POUSNER
