DreamWorlds: The Inspired Concept Art of DreamWorks Animation

DreamWorks Animation
runs from April 14 - May 8, 2009

From its inception in 1994, DreamWorks Animation has attracted some of the most talented artists and designers in the world. Together, they have conceptualized ancient and modern worlds, designed beloved characters, and created for their 16 films an ever-expanding universe of the imagination: diverse, stylish, humorous and fresh. The show contains numerous never-before-seen early concept works and character designs from the DreamWorks Animation archive. Included in the show will be paintings, drawings, sculptures and even miniature sets that helped the designers and directors turn their flat art into lush 3d environments suitable for the big screen.

We are very proud to share some of the hidden magic that has driven and sustained almost 15 years of creativity, and helped DreamWorks Animation become a leader in the feature animation industry.

A 60 minute panel discussion with Rex Grignon and Kendal Cronkhite will be held on the opening night in the SJSU Music Concert Hall on Tuesday, April 14 at 5 pm.

Gallery hours: Tuesday-Friday 11am-4pm & Tuesday evening 6-8pm
