Phyllis Wattis Theater

THEY INVENTED A NEW KIND OF ART...AND A NEW KIND OF SEX TO GO WITH IT! Killian's Wet Paint tells the story of Jay DeFeo and San Francisco's bohemian underground with a cast of artists, poets, filmmakers, musicians, critics, and other DeFeo fans. Despite its absurd touches, Wet Paint is an ultimately touching salute to a great painter from succeeding generations of Bay Area artists.
