• The VSW Salon is a bi-monthly engagement in the VSW microcinema featuring film screenings, artist talks, Community Curator events, performances, photo presentations and conversations. VSW Salon showcases the work of local and national artists, and invites them to present their work in an intimate “microcinema” equipped to show 16mm, Super 8, digital photography and video on state of the art equipment.

    VSW Salon events generally take place the second and fourth Thursday of the month in the VSW Microcinema. Most VSW Salon events begin at 6pm with a 1 hour Open Studio with the current VSW Residents, followed by the featured event at 7 pm. All events are in-person unless otherwise indicated, with limited seating. Facemasks are required for all events.

    VSW Salon events are offered on a sliding scale price structure – suggested price is $10 for each event, however you can choose the price that is right for you.
