Larger Than Life: The Kevyn Aucoin Story
Thursday, June 27, 2019 6:00 pm
Event hosted by: Alcone Company
Alcone Company is honored to present a special viewing of Larger Than Life: The Kevyn Aucoin Story, the indie documentary about the late, legendary makeup artist followed by a Q&A panel with the film’s director Tiffany Bartok, Troy Surratt (co-producer of the film) and Samantha Adkisson (Kevyn’s niece) along with a very special guest TBA.
Before the feature, the screening will begin with a short film from the Alcone Archives that has extremely rare footage from the mid-60s of the late Mark Traynor and his unique hair and makeup creations “for the future.” Traynor’s Temporary Face Lifts were often used by Kevyn to create many of his famous makeup transformations.
The night also includes the launch of The Art of Kevyn Aucoin, a limited edition book that will be available for purchase. Created especially for this event, it offers a peek into Kevyn’s personal collection of drawings, face charts and more, with all proceeds from the sales going to the Hetrick-Martin Institute, the nationâ€™s largest and very first LGBTQ Youth Services organization.
Doors open at 6pm. Come early and enjoy beer, wine and conversation! Screening begins promptly at 7pm.
