"Jackson Pollock's Mural: The Story of a Modern Masterpiece." Emmy Award winning filmmaker Kevin Kelley, the film's producer and director, proposed the film project because of his love of art and passion for the new University of Iowa Museum of Art. Kelley described the film as a "film about a journey - the journey of how one painting changed the course of modern American art over seventy years ago, and the painting's journey around the world after a disastrous flood destroyed its home."
Kirk Murray, Director of Photography, Dana Telsrow, Assistant Editor and Graphics Animator, along with Kelley and others from the University of Iowa Office of Strategic of Communication worked on the film for over a year.
The film has recently been accepted into multiple film festivals, including The NewFilmmakers Festival, The Newport Beach Film Festival, and The Black Hills Film Festival, and is being shown at art museums in Berlin and Spain.
