TYRUS presents the story of how Tyrus Wong overcame a life of poverty and racism to become: a celebrated painter who exhibited with Picasso and Matisse, a Hollywood sketch artist, and a ‘Disney Legend.’ It spotlights how his unique style–melding Chinese calligraphic and landscape influences with contemporary Western art–has impacted countless facets of our American visual culture.
The event is free and open to the public!
