Lewandowski at Work

We just found this great short film on YouTube that shows Edmund Lewandowski, subject of our current exhibition "Edmund Lewandowski: Precisionism and Beyond," at work on a mural of the S.S. President Van Buren. It's silent but in color, and titles announce the different sections: preparatory drawing, squaring, underdrawing (by far the longest section) and finally painting in of the mural. Lewandowski also holds a pipe in his teeth for much of the process.

Paul Manoguerra, in-house curator of the exhibition, which was organized by the Flint Institute of Arts, also put together this slideshow of images from its installation in our galleries.
