Landmarks, the public art program at the University of Texas, presents a performance and Q&A with woodcut motion picture artist Jay Bolotin at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday.
Bolotin is best known in the art world for his woodcuts, but he also composes and performs musical scores and designs sets for opera, film, dance, and documentaries. Most recently, he created the world’s first woodcut motion picture, ‘The Jackleg Testament Part I: The Story of Jack & Eve.’ The project won Best Animation at the 2007 Santa Fe Film Festival.
Teaming up with PrintAustin, Landmarks will present a screening of ‘The Jackleg Testament’ followed by a question and answer period and reception. The event takes place at The Off Center (2211-A Hidalgo St). Refreshments will be provided and seating is limited.
