Shot for the documentary film I GREW UP IN PRINCETON in July of 2012, this footage (of which very little was used for that film), was gathered and re-edited in the days and weeks following the death of master Realist painter Nelson Shanks. The result is a sweet and engaging look at Nelson at home, with friends and family.
