Carroll Brown

Writer/Filmmaker

He’s not a household name. He’s not on the bestseller list. But Carroll Brown is a published fiction writer and poet, an award-winning screenwriter, a filmmaker, and now a director. At the same time, he works a full-time job in a field outside of the creative arts, as well as being a husband and father. How do you balance the effort to be a creative artist with the requirements of making a living? What are the tips and tricks to balancing the left brain and the right brain, and how do you keep the creative spark alight at the end of a long day?

Join us at this month’s ARTree Speaker Series for a candid discussion with Carroll Brown, highlighted with samples and clips of his work, about the struggle to create, and maybe even succeed, in the rigors of today’s artistic economic environment.

7:00 p.m. / Thursday, May 25

Spanning motion picture design, comic books, book illustration, poster design, CD covers, and public murals, award-winning artist William Stout has built a legendary body of work. From his first movie poster in 1977, for Ralph Bakshi’s cult classic Wizards, Stout went on to contribute to such films as Jurassic Park, Pan’s Labyrinth and the upcoming Disney/Pixar production Magic Kingdom. More recently, his dynamic and accurate reproductions of prehistoric life are on permanent display in museums and theme parks across the nation, and over his career his work has been the subject of over 100 museum exhibitions, including a dozen one-man shows.

Come and join us at the ARTree Speaker Series to hear William Stout speak about his career, his art, and living in Antarctica (no, really!).
