The Chapman Green Arts Series, presented by Tulsa Mayfest, begins its inaugural season with a showing of the award-winning film “Loving Vincent,” on Friday, June 14, at the Chapman Green, 605 S. Main St.

The film — an animated biographical portrait of the artist Vincent van Gogh done in a way to mimic van Gogh’s paintings — will be the centerpiece of an evening of art-related activities.

Pinot’s Palette artists will be on-site beginning at 7 p.m. to oversee the creation of two collaborative paintings done in the van Gogh style. Visitors can explore the “Prairie Schooners” installation, created by Patrick Dougherty, and take self-portraits with the “Be the One” installation.

Patrons may bring picnic dinners or purchase meals from restaurants near the Chapman Green.

The film will begin at 9 p.m. It is rated PG-13.

The Movie Nights will continue through June, with showings of “Mary Poppins Returns” on June 21 and “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part” on June 28.

Other planned events include Games on the Green, where participants can play a variety of lawn games, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesdays; and the Fairy Festival, featuring themed performances, storytelling, art installations and activities for all ages.

All Chapman Green events are free to the public. For more information:
