It's a record full of bracing realizations, tearful declarations and moments of hard-won peace, expressed in lyrics that feel destined for countless yearbook quotes and first tattoos.

Art Events

Loving Vincent / Loving Vincent: The Impossible Dream - Sunday, 4:00pm-7:00pm

Palace Theater

Loving Vincent is the world’s first fully oil painted feature film. The film brings the paintings of Vincent van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story. Every one of the 65,000 frames of the film is an oil-painting hand-painted by 125 professional oil-painters who travelled from all across the world to the Loving Vincent studios in Poland and Greece to be a part of the production. Loving Vincent: The Impossible Dream recalls a 10 year journey that brought the world's first painted feature film to the cinema screen. The potential for a truly groundbreaking yet completely unseen project seemed like a huge risk, but when in the hands of passionate filmmakers willing to risk everything to make their impossible dream come true, nothing could stand in their way. One chance to see both of these brilliant films. May 12th 4pm - $10. Photo and information about this event are from
