The film, A Prairie Night, by Jerry R. West combines a compelling sound track by West with visuals from his paintings, sculpture and sound installation of the same name. The sounds for this piece come from early tapes recorded by West in the 50’s and 60’s. The video was shot by Steina and Woody Vasulka during and after the artist’s installation at Heydt-Bair gallery in Santa Fe in 1982.
