Run the ROM Movement Movement

Run the ROM Runs Tonight


Almost a year ago, hundreds of joggers and high-sock enthusiasts descended on the then-unfinished ROM reno to take part in a 5k run through the museum. Keen readers might recall that blogTO interviewed the duo that "runs with art" behind The Movement Movement on an earlier episode of the Arts Now Podcast.

Having run the ROM event myself, part of the fun was trying not to fall over the number of camera toting runners that were putting together footage for what will be shown at the premiere screening tonight at The Gladstone. Keep on reading for the deets.

The footage they've put together is quite short coming in at just over seven minutes, and will document the run from a whole series of perspectives around the museum.
