The BFA Film, Video and Animation Department is presenting “Which Way Did They Go?”, an exhibition of works by five alumni who have created some of the most memorable images in animation history. With nearly 100 years of collective experience in the art and business of animation, exhibiting artists John R. Dilworth, Yvette Kaplan, Alex Kupershmidt, Chris Prynoski and Tom Sito have helped make animation one of the most vital and relevant entertainment media today. The exhibition features works by the creators of such films as The Lion King, Lilo and Stitch, and Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, and the television series King of the Hill, Courage the Cowardly Dog and Downtown. A selection of drawings, sketches, cels and film and television clips marks career highlights for some of this country’s leading animation artists and traces the development of selected projects from concept to production.
The exhibition will be on display at the SVA Gallery, 209 East 23rd Street, through Saturday, January 21, 2006. The artists will participate in a panel discussion on Friday, December 16, 6pm, in the third-floor Amphitheater; admission is free.
