Chances are, your favorite creature feature stars the work of makeup and special effects master, and UVA alumnus, Stan Winston. The eponymous Stan Winston Arts Festival of the Moving Creature at UVA is the culmination of a yearlong workshop in which students bring their creative and engineering skills to life with help from visiting artists from The Stan Winston School of Character Arts in Los Angeles, founded by Winston’s son, Matt, in honor of his father’s lifetime dedication to all things creeping, crawling, and spectacular to look at.  Info at www.virginia.edu/arts/visual_arts/events/moving_creature.

Saturday 4/20 Free, 2pm. UVA Arts Grounds (festivities will continue at Nameless Field at 3pm).
