In December of 2012, artist Thomas Campbell collaborated with the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History on “Work in Progress,” a project intended to pull back the curtain on the creative process. For eleven weeks, museum visitors could watch as Thomas invented, deconstructed, and reimagined a landscape of mythic characters and stories. The result is his most ambitious work to date: a 75-foot-long three-dimensional mural in the museum’s main gallery. This video captures the process from first stroke of paint to last and all the surprises in-between. Directed by Tiffany Campbell.
