Contest supports goal for local to make a movie


MORRIS – Mitch Finzel started experimenting making art with fractals – art through chaos math – during a digitally assisted art class at the University of Minnesota, Morris.

After one of his pieces won a contest this spring, Finzel plans to use his success in one media to jump-start a bigger project about his life and outlook on life while living with a rare genetic condition.
