VA54 Channeling Van Gogh: my Life as a Painter/Animator for Loving Vincent
Join Colorado Springs artist Dena Peterson as she shares her unique experiences as a painter/animator for the film, “Loving Vincent,” by Break Thru Films. Peterson spent 5 1/2 months in Gdansk, Poland working as an oil painter and animator on this first fully hand-painted feature-length film about the life and death of Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh. Peterson was one of 125 international artists selected from 5,000 portfolio submissions to recreate the scenes in oil paint based on Van Gogh’s paintings. She’ll share photos and anecdotes from her time there and answer audience questions.
