  • Austin Creative Art Center 1207 West 6th Street Austin, TX, 78703 United States (map)

Calling All Artisans, Patrons of the Arts and Art Lovers!

It's time to figure out your purpose, write down your goals and get your mind and heart with the program. We're talking about starting this new year off in the right way!

Join us for Visual Art & Vino to hear about a new feature film, "A Monster Calls," and paint your intention for 2017.

Focus Features will be in the studio 7:30 - 8:30 p.m. promoting the movie, so bring your Babes, Baes, and Boos to scoop your tickets and celebrate 2017 with purpose driven creatives. 


A MONSTER CALLS is a visually spectacular and unabashedly emotional drama from director J.A. Bayona. 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall) is dealing with far more that other boys his age. His beloved and devoted mother (Felicity Jones) is ill. He has little in common with his imperious grandmother (Sigourney Weaver). His father (Toby Kebbell) has resettled thousands of miles away. But Conor finds a most unlikely ally when the Monster (portrayed by Liam Neeson in performance-capture and voiceover) appears at his bedroom window one night. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth that powerfully fuses imagination and reality.
