Residents of Beloit, Wisconsin gather along Rock River to recreate George Seurat’s “Sunday Afternoon on the Island of LaGrande Jatte.”



Georges-Pierre Seurat practically invented the technique of Pointillism, which uses tiny dots of paint rather than larger brush strokes. Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte took Seurat two years to complete, and is now exhibited in the permanent collection of the Art Institute of Chicago.Makes me think of the scene in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”
