CA – Rose McGowan Signing

Rose McGowan appears at Barnes & Noble in the Grove on Wednesday February 7, 2018 at 7:00 PM to celebrate her memoir Brave – a no-holds-barred, pull-no-punches account of the rise of a millennial icon, fearless activist, and unstoppable force for change who is determined to expose the truth about the entertainment industry, dismantle the concept of fame, shine a light on a multibillion-dollar business built on systemic misogyny, and empower people everywhere to wake up.

Rose McGowan was born in one cult and came of age in another, more visible cult: Hollywood. In a strange world where she was continually on display, stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure and sexualization. Rose escaped into the world of her mind, something she had done as a child, and into high-profile relationships. Every detail of her personal life became public, and the realities of an inherently sexist industry emerged with every script, role, public appearance, and magazine cover. The Hollywood machine packaged her as a sexualized bombshell, hijacking her image and identity and marketing them for profit.

Hollywood expected Rose to be silent and cooperative and to stay the path. Instead, she rebelled and asserted her true identity and voice. She reemerged unscripted, courageous, victorious, angry, smart, fierce, unapologetic, controversial, and real as f*ck.

This is a wristbanded event. A wristband will be issued on a first come, first serve basis to customers who purchase BRAVE from Barnes & Noble at The Grove beginning February 7th at 9am. Limit 1 wristband per book

DC – An Evening with Rose McGowan

Rose McGowan appears at GW University on Friday, February 2, 2018 at 7:00 PM to present her new book BRAVE. Tickets available at the link…

Long before the #MeToo movement, Rose McGowan was speaking out about her experiences as a Hollywood star. As an actress, Rose found herself continually on display, and her stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure and sexualization. She was expected to stay quiet about the realities of an inherently sexist industry. Instead, she rebelled, asserting her true identity and voice. Brave is her memoir and her manifesto—a no-holds-barred account of the rise of a millennial icon and fearless activist who is determined to expose the truth about the entertainment industry, shine a light on systemic misogyny, and empower people everywhere to be brave.

Computers don’t make movies. People do: the artists, editors, animators, and technical directors. People are the life behind everything that gets created at Pixar. While animated films are technically complex to make, they each begin with the simplicity of putting pencil to paper.Many people don’t realize that Pixar has almost as many artists working in traditional media-hand drawing, painting, pastels, sculpture-as they do in digital media. Most of their work takes place during the development of a project, when they are working out the story and the look of the film. The wealth of beautiful art created for each movie is rarely seen outside the studio, and the finished film sent around the world would never be possible without it.Pixar believes that a film is a contract between the filmmaker and the audience. The filmmaker offers an imagined world; the public interprets the creation. With just the right amount of realism, a film becomes perfectly believable. This belief hinges on the consistent application of the rules of the filmic world. These rules are explored and defined through concept art formats, including character studies, background paintings and color scripts just to name a few. The result is a world both new and recognizable; fictitious yet intuitively real.The Pixar Art Collection is the first time a coordinated assortment of Pixar concept art has been released, celebrating each milestone film release in Pixar’s history. The pieces were hand-picked by a select team at Pixar and represent a wide range of media, from marker to pastels to digital creation.

The Collection is a love letter to Pixar and to Pixar’s fans – to each of us who found adventure, soared through space, changed our fate and renounced capes forever. To infinity and beyond!
