It's a wonderful opportunity to connect with alumni, students, filmmakers, and friends while supporting current students in their creative fields and disciplines.

About the film:
“Work At Hand, Michael K. Paxton” is a film about the painter Michael K. Paxton, chronicling his life and work. From his humble beginnings in the hills of West Virginia, his battle to overcome stage 4 cancer, and his continued survival 20 years later. Our film takes us to West Virginia see this special place, to speak with family, and visit the people in the art world who most appreciate his work and illuminate what makes Michael and his paintings so unique and important. We look at his paintings in-depth, and chronical how his work has evolved, and how contemporary events and context have shaped his vision as a man and as an artist.
