How far would you go for your one true love? Would you give up all of your earthly possessions, your job, and your family? What if your one true love was a printing press…
At 40 years of age, Amos Paul Kennedy Jr. abandoned the traditional American Dream to follow his own. Laura Zinger’s film, Proceed and Be Bold! joins him for a titillating retelling of this story, while examining the pretensions and provisions of the art world.

Join us for a showing of this film and Q&A session afterwards with the man himself.
