Orangenius will be the subject of a one-hour long documentary to air in Spring 2019.  The show will focus on the struggles artists have trying to make it in the competitive art industry.  The program will follow the journey of Burt Wolf, the show’s producer, as he uses Orangenius to bring his never-before-seen paintings to the world.
