"The Muslims are Coming!" a film by Negin Farsad
The Muslims are Coming! is a 78 minute documentary screening followed by a Q&A from one of the film's directors, Negin Farsad. Farsad is also a professinal comedian who has appeared on numerous TV shows. The Muslims Are Coming!, like most films with a social activist agenda, offers something to learn and something to think about, but unlike most, it will also make you laugh. A lot.
Tuesday, Oct. 8, 6:30 pm
The Muslims Are Coming! represents a couple of comedians' dream to change the crappy stereotypes about Muslims and move the dialogue toward inclusion, community and love! Admission is FREE!

Washington Hall Art Gallery Exhibits
Alex Gibson, Sept-Nov 10
Showing now through November 10 at the Art Gallery in Washington Hall is a traveling exhibit by artist Alex Gibson, depicting the life of a friend who disappeared.
“The primary goal of this endeavour is to attempt to experience the places James lived, chronologically in the order he was there: Rock Springs, Centralia, Laramie, Pullman, Cotati, Gig Harbor, Petersbury. My perspective of him is based on my experiences with him, the only way to get a more objective view of his perspective is to trace his footsteps, and physically connect myself with his work,” said Gibson.
Each of the glass panels depicts a specific time & place in the life of his friend, James, who a jury ruled may have committed suicide. “Although this comes from a credible source, there is no evidence that acceptably supports their conclusion enough to contradict my belief that he has intentionally disappeared, that he still exists somewhere,” said Gibson. Stop by Washinton Hall, read the panels and share this journey.
