POV Series Screening: Art and Craft

Join us as we partner with POV, the award winning series on PBS, to kick off our documentary series on June 10th.

Our first film, Art and Craft, features Mark Landis, one of the most prolific art forgers of the modern era—who isn’t in it for the money. In the last 30 years he’s copied hundreds of pieces, from 15th-century icons to works by Picasso and even Dr. Seuss, then donated them to museums across the country. When a tenacious registrar discovers the ruse, Landis must confront his legacy and a chorus of duped professionals intent on stopping him. But Landis is a diagnosed schizophrenic, driven since his teens to escape “the life of a mental patient,” and ending the con isn’t so simple. A cat-and-mouse caper told with humor and compassion, Art and Craft uncovers the universal in one man’s search for connection and respect. 

This FREE screening will be at the Texas Spirit Theater at the Bullock Museum on June 10, 2015 @ 7PM.
