Tim’s Vermeer: A Penn and Teller Film

When: Wed., Oct. 29, 7 p.m. 2014

Tim Jenison, a Texas-based inventor, attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: how did seventeenth-century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer ( Girl with a Pearl Earring ) manage to paint so photo-realistically—150 years before the invention of photography? The epic research project Jenison embarks on to test his theory is as extraordinary as what he discovers.
