TONIGHT: Angel Azul: Creativity in Focus, Co-Presented by The Utah Film Center

Angel Azul 1

Artists and art lovers alike are often asked some variation of the question: What is the role of art in our lives? And while it may escape a definitive answer, it’s fascinating to see artists whose work seems to be–just by nature of its existence– answering this very question in new and exciting ways.

Angel Azul investigates the artistic journey of Jason deCaires Taylor, who creates artificial coral reefs with statues cast from live models.

The film Angel Azul (screening TONIGHT at the UMFA) explores the artistic journey of Jason deCaires Taylor, an innovative artist who works with underwater sculpture. His work combines creativity with an important environmental solution; the creation of artificial coral reefs from statues he’s cast from live models. The film explores his method, and includes  information about the perilous situation currently facing coral reefs, and solutions necessary to save them.
