Documentary Film | Cy Dear

Sun, Oct 8, 2023
1–3 pm
Leslie Cheek Theater

This documentary film celebrates the internationally acclaimed artist Cy Twombly. A Lexington, Virginia, native and 1952 recipient of a VMFA Fellowship, Twombly emerged as a major figure in the era of American pop art and found his own unique style thanks to his passionate interest in Greco-Roman mythology and poetry. Guest speaker Jeffrey Allison, Director of VMFA Statewide Programs and Paul Mellon Educator, will introduce the film, which explores the artist's life journey from the United States to Italy and back to Lexington. VMFA presents Cy Dear as a tribute to its special exhibition Cy Twombly, Morocco, 1952/1953, on view at VMFA through Jan 7, 2024. (2019; 92 min; Good Day Films)
