Tommy Simpson: Living in a World I Created


Thursday, Jun 9 5:30 – 6:00

The Why Make? Podcast and Beery­Media present a screen­ing of the new short docu­men­tary film Tommy Simpson: Living in a World I Created.

This newly completed short film is about Tommy Simpson — an artist, wood­worker, sculp­tor, furni­ture maker, painter and poet.

Tommy is a true orig­i­nal in the art world and one of the ground break­ers of the modern studio furniture movement.

The ulti­mate goal,” Tommy says, is to bring the artwork to life, so that the viewer can iden­tify the human spirit behind the work, and expe­ri­ence its poetry.”

There will be an intro from the movie’s produc­ers and Why Make? Podcast hosts, Robb Helmkamp and Erik Wolken, and a short Q&A after.

Running Time 22:07
