Live Stream Film Screening and Q&A
|Virtual Film Screening: The Angel That Stands by Me. Director and Academy Award Winner Allie Light will introduce the film and be available for a Q&A after the screening. This documentary features Minnie Evans, who is now regarded as one of America’s most famous and important visionary artists, and includes interviews that explore her artistic influences and religious beliefs. Most of her earliest pieces were executed in wax crayons; she later turned to colored pencils and oils. In 1948 Evans was hired as the gatekeeper for Airlie Plantation Gardens in Wilmington, NC. For the next 27 years, whenever she wasn’t busy selling admission tickets, she made and sold her artwork on the side. In 1975 New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art mounted a major retrospective of Minnie Evans’s work. The film is courtesy of the American Visionary Art Museum through the generous gift of Allie Light.|
