Hear from artists on how their personal experiences and influences inform the process of their art. An intimate gathering hosted by Fort Point artist and musician John Cremona. Space is limited.

 

Week 1: Roberto Mighty
FPAC Artist Roberto Mighty will screen excerpts from his films and multimedia exhibits; play a few musical examples on guitar; and invite audience Q&A. He’ll touch on how his filmmaking is influenced by Vermeer, Hendrix, Brahms, James Brown and Mark Rothko; the meditative process of practicing guitar while film editing; how his Fort Point neighbors inspire him; and why parking around here is driving him insane.

Roberto Mighty is a multimedia artist, filmmaker and musician who uses interactive and digital technology in his work. He has been an FPAC member and Fort Point Channel resident artist since 2014. 

Roberto is currently completing a year-long film and interactive multimedia project about Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King for King Boston. His exhibits and commissions include an Artist Residency at Harvard Forest about Puritans and Native Americans; appointment as the inaugural Artist-in-Residence at Mount Auburn Cemetery, America’s first garden cemetery and a National Historic Landmark; a series of films for the Favorite Poem Project; Guest Artist at Truro Center for the Arts, where he created a multimedia project about the seashore inspired by the writings of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry; and an exhibit about urban trees, “Trees of My City”,  at The Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University.  

Roberto is Adjunct Professor at Emerson College, has taught at Boston University, and teaches private workshops in editing and digital cinematography. Mighty earned his MFA in Visual Arts from Lesley University’s College of Arts and Sciences and his BA in History from Boston University. Roberto has been playing guitar professionally since age 13 and currently performs in a jazz duo, “Roberto & Kathryn”, with his life partner, vocalist Kathryn Howell.

Roberto’s work has been funded through the National Science Foundation, The Boston Foundation, the Institute for Museum and Library Services and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Fellowships include the National Black Programming Consortium; The Kopkind/CID Filmmakers’ Fellowship; the National Association of Latino Independent Producers and the inaugural City of Boston Artist Residency Cohort.
