LPCA film series features ‘Who the #$%@ Is Jackson Pollock’

July 4, 2012
Adirondack Daily Enterprise

LAKE?PLACID?- The Lake Placid Center for the Arts Summer Film Series continues at 7:30 p.m. Friday with "Who the #$%@ is Jackson Pollock."

The film is a humorous insight into the art authentication process in America, documenting the tale of Teri Horton, a 73-year-old long-haul truck driver, who picked up a painting in a thrift shop. When she went to sell it in a garage sale, a local art teacher recognized the painting as a possible work by famed American artist Jackson Pollock. What followed pitted a blue-collar worker against the highest and mightiest people in the art world and would perhaps change forever the way art is authenticated.

Tickets are $6. For more information, call the Lake Placid Center for the Arts at 518-523-2512 or visit www.LakePlacidArts.org.
