Portrait of an Artist Documentary
Portrait of an Artist chronicles the year Duluth Artist Sarah Brokke spent creating a series of 36 portraits of artists in her community who inspired her. While the exhibition closed in January 2016, the project has had continued resonance both in book form (Holy Cow Press’ Portrait of an Artist) and otherwise. From inception to culmination, this film was created to document both the creation of this series of work, but also to highlight some of the subjects of her pieces. Filmmaker Dan Branovan of Shook Production seeks to capture the project, its ripple effects, as well as reflect on this community that resides on the western edge of Lake Superior.
The event is free, but tickets are limited. A free-will donation will be taken at the door for the Duluth Art Institute. Portrait of an Artist: Paintings by Sarah M. Brokke will also be available for sale directly from the publisher, Holy Cow! Press.
