Fort Worth: Chris Sauter

June 23, 2010

We traveled to Fort Worth this past weekend to work on a short documentary following artist Chris Sauter. We got started the minute we arrived at the Fort Worth Contemporary Arts Gallery (at TCU) on Thursday.

We continued following Chris’ work until Sunday afternoon, when he completed the installation. We all went for a celebratory lunch and visited the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, a fantastic museum. We truly recommend a visit if you are in the area. We’ve since returned home and have begun capturing footage from our trip. The show opens July 2nd in Fort Worth, the completed film will be on Glasstire.com.
