A story of renegades and firebrands all willing to risk their future careers on radical change and experimentation-a marked contrast to the hyper-speculative contemporary art world of today. Featuring rare interviews with a veritable who’s who of American Art of the twentieth century. Much of the art featured in this film is located in Utah!
