This FREE screening sponsored by the Springfield Art Museum and is part of their Four by Four 2014: Midwest Invitational Exhibition. Oklahoma based-artist Denny Schmickle selected this film and will be on hand afterward to discuss how work.

Beautiful Losers is a feature documentary film celebrating the independent and DIY spirit that unified a loose-knit group of American artists who emerged from the underground youth subcultures of skateboarding, graffiti, punk rock, and hip-hop. This documentary tells the story of how a group of outsiders with little or no formal training and almost no conception or interest of the inner workings of the art world ended up having an incredible impact on the worlds of art, fashion, music, film, and pop culture.

"Beautiful Losers challenges and appreciates, is worthy and worthless; a piece of art in itself."
- Mark Bell, Film Threat
"For a film about a gaggle of slackers, Beautiful Losers is remarkably polished; with its quicksilver editing and fastidious mise-en-scene, it's as tight as the artists are slack."
- Michael Hard, Boston Globe
"Names of the other artists - such as Barry McGee, Ed Templeton, Margaret Kilgallen and Jo Jackson - won't necessarily ring a bell, but they all have interesting stories to tell in this pleasant film, which sings the praises of nonconformity."
- V.A. Musetto, New York Post
