The UI Museum of Art and the School of Art & Art History are delighted to present 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.”

Ben Hill, Executive Producer; 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 Communication worked on the film for over a year.

There will be a Q & A following the screening with film director Kevin Kelley, UIMA Director Sean O'Harrow and SAAH Professor Joni Kinsey.
The event is FREE and open to the public
Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.  Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
