Thanks, Volunteers!

We are proud to conclude another successful run at the Marin County Fair! A heartfelt thanks to all of the volunteers who represented CMCM. Your time, energy, and support mean the world to us. Simply put -- we couldn't be the wonderful organization we are without members like YOU. We would also like to thank local artist Dickens 44 for lending his captivating "Selfie Hipsters" for our animated photobooth. His art stole the show and inspired children and adults alike!

We also owe a big shout out to John MacLeod, the executive director of XRlibraries (formerly VARLibraries), without whom we wouldn't have our prime location in the Exhibit Hall! Thank you for inviting us to share your space year after year.

Finally, thank you Marin! Your participation and enthusiasm make public media possible. We're so glad you stopped by. Hopefully, we'll be seeing some new faces around the center soon.

Experience the Art of Dickens 44 at CMCM | EXTENDED through August

Georgia Annwell Gallery

We will officially be extending Dickens 44's exhibit through August. You now have until August 31st to marvel at the works of Marin's legendary Glue Artist.

Dickens 44 works prolifically from a warehouse studio in Novato, CA. A key player in the Haight-Ashbury art scene, Bascom is still heavily influenced by the counterculture movement and isn’t shy to talk about his experience with Timothy Leary, Woodstock, and the Unknown Museum. In 1981, the artist left the country as a way to escape drug-abuse and a changing cultural landscape. He has since lived all over the globe in countries including Panama, Thailand, Brazil, and the Philippines.

Bascom plans to one day teach his form of “recycledelic fusion art” at children’s hospitals as a form of art therapy. He hopes the positive nature of his work will influence others to turn to creativity, “as an answer to boredom and confusion”.

Cheese Theatre 200th Episode | May 12 at 10 PM on CH26

After 200 Episodes, Bill Arney’s “Cheese Theatre” Still Looks Sharp

Becoming a member of the Community Media Center of Marin in 2011, Arney was encouraged to host his own show. Eight years later, on May 12, 2018, Marin TV will air the 200th episode of Arney’s own Saturday night treat, “Cheese Theatre.”

Arney thinks of “Cheese Theatre” as a tongue-in-cheek version of Turner Classic Movies. “​It's the commentary that makes a show like this unique,” he says. “Who would watch TCM without the intro and closing remarks by the host?​ As he reflects on producing and hosting 200 episodes, Arney admits, “​I did not expect to get this far.“ Originally, I hoped to make it five years. Now that we are finishing up Season 8, I feel like it could go on forever. The only limitation is movie availability, but it seems there are plenty of them out there, waiting to be rediscovered.” It would seem “Cheese Theatre” is aging well.
