Updated time: Tallgrass Film Festival film about the artist Miro will screen at CAC Theater

Join the Ulrich Museum of Art for a screening of “Miro” at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 8 in the CAC Theater.

Learn about the life of artist Joan Miró from the 2022 biopic by Oriol Ferrer. The event is presented by the Ulrich Museum in partnership with the Tallgrass Film Festival. On the way to the film, check out the largest mosaic created by Joan Miró in the US, “Les Personnage Oiseau,” on the face of the Ulrich Museum.

Joan Miró was born with a future already defined by his father. The stern and authoritarian character of his father quickly marked the introverted and weak character of a young Miró obsessed with painting. Miró despairs because of the incomprehension and conservative thinking of his hometown, Barcelona. With hopes of change, he decides to go to try his luck in the effervescent Paris.
