The Father

by Florian Zellner

Presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing


The Art of a Play:

Cross Promotion at the NFCT


Artist Cynthia Wells was awarded a grant from the Huntington Arts Council to create works that explore the human experience through drawing the production of the play, “The Father”.

Wells has captured unscripted behind-the-scenes character studies of actors portraying a man’s descent into dementia. She was awarded the Huntington Arts Council grant for the project.  


“My drawing technique is animation drawing. I use design, detail, and exaggeration to capture the essence of a theatrical moment. This gives audiences (at the theater where the work will be exhibited) a different perspective on the play.” Cynthia Wells is an award-winning animation filmmaker and painter.  


The art will be displayed at the NFCT before and during the play. 


This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrant Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Governor and the New York State Legislature, and administered by The Huntington Arts Council.
