Live Your Art

A collaborative filmmaking experiment, Live Your Art documents the experience of living and working in Buffalo as an artist. Bringing together four diverse UB artists, the short film is a celebration of creativity across the disciplines. The production team, led by UB filmmaker Mani Mehrvarz--and featuring UB artists Naila Ansari, Julia Anne Cordani, Pam Glick, and Maryam Muliaee--takes cameras into spaces where art is made, and then leads viewers out into the city on a search for sources of inspiration, collaboration and community.

The film serves as the messaging for UB Arts Collaboratory and also as a reminder of the power of art—and a humanities and liberal arts education--in describing the world we inhabit.
