Art and a Movie: Thomas Hart Benton

02:00 pm to 05:00 pm
IU Cinema

This documentary double feature highlights the career of American artist Thomas Hart Benton, a master of Regionalism. Through home movies and interviews, Burns takes viewers on a journey through Benton’s life. Miller and Zuzolo focus on a single masterwork: the artist’s monumental Indiana Murals currently housed in three locations on the IU campus. The murals’ 22 panels trace the state’s cultural and industrial history from its early native peoples to the Great Depression.

There will be a pre-screening talk at 2 p.m. in the IU Auditorium. It will be presented by Nan Brewer, the IU Eskenazi Museum of Art’s Lucienne M. Glaubinger Curator of Works on Paper.

The event will take place from 2–5 p.m. on Sunday, April 8. This event is free but ticketed. To acquire advanced tickets please visit the IU Cinema’s website.

Art and a Movie is sponsored in part by Marsha R. Bradford and Harold A. Dumes.


Cost: Free but ticketed
