The days leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, Georges Seurat is struggling to make meaningful art and maintaining a relationship with his lover, Dot. Amid the scorn of the artistic community, Seurat’s artistic ability thrives while his love diminishes. A century later, Seurat’s descendant – named George and also an artist – finds himself burnt out and in search of what artistic path to follow, but he finds the answer to his future in the past.

Schwab Auditorium is located on Pollack Road behind Old Main on campus.
We recommend parking downtown in one of the garages. From there it’s a short walk, using the footpath directly across from the Corner Room.
People can be dropped off near the auditorium on Pollack and the cars parked at the Hub parking deck.
