The music and lyrics of Harry Nilsson is a book of memories in words and sound of the challenges of love and life. Visual art of course can be a powerful tool to articulate our most potent memories.

Enjoy the gentle thrill of painting on a watercolor table what your memory sings to you.
Tonight we host a very special treat – a documentary film about our featured songwriter who captured the devotion of The Beatles without every performing a major public concert! Tonight’s film shares the stories of Nilsson’s life and the insights into his Grammy Award–winning and significant commercial career.
