NACOGDOCHES, Texas - The Stephen F. Austin State University School of Art and the Friends of the Visual Arts will present a free, one-night screening of "Scrap" at 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 7, in The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House in downtown Nacogdoches.

"Scrap" is a feature documentary following the history of two eccentric builders and their amazing structures which were each built by a single man: "The Forevertron" built by Tom Every and "Bishop Castle" built by Jim Bishop. The film focuses on the architects of these structures, as they are "as fascinating and awe inducing as their creations," according to information at www.imdb.com.

Paul von Stoetzel directed the film, which runs 101 minutes.

This screening is part of the School of Art's monthly Friday Night Film Series and is sponsored in part by The Liberty Bell, Main Street Nacogdoches, Bill Arscott, Jill Carrington, Karon Gillespie, John Heath, David Kulhavy and Brad Maule.

The Cole Art Center is located at 329 E. Main St. For more information, call (936) 468-1131.
