A Night of Rochester Arts Icons

Mon, 11/26/2018 - 8:00pm - 11:00pm

WXXI presents an evening of Rochester arts icons.

Tune in to WXXI-TV on Monday, November 26 at 8 p.m. for two WXXI-produced documentaries that spotlight two of Rochester's most distinguished artists. The first is Wendell Castle: A Portrait. Filmed over the course of a year by WXXI-TV’s production team, the documentary captures the life of the master furniture artist, designer, sculptor, and educator. Through Castle’s own words and interviews with family, friends, and colleagues, viewers will learn about his early years as an artist, his creative process, and the vision for his work.

Then at 9:30 p.m. WXXI-TV presents Dialogue in Metal. With unprecedented access to both artists, WXXI spent roughly a year chronicling the creative journeys of world renowned sculpture artist Albert Paley and Jesse James of West Coast Choppers fame as they worked to create two different sculptures. Each artist starts one sculpture and finishes the others. WXXI captures their journey and the unveiling in this hour-long documentary.
