Visitors can dive into the colorful world of animation through the new exhibit coming to Honolulu's Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum, "Animation Academy: From Pencils to Pixels."
The exhibit features 19 interactive components, such as drawing stations and a 3D stop-motion terminal, that allow visitors to see how their favorite cartoons and animated features are created.
The exhibit will be on display in the museum's Castle Memorial Building from Oct. 7 through Jan. 14.
"From Mickey Mouse to Scooby Doo, this exhibit will showcase some of our most beloved characters," Bishop Museum director of exhibits Brad Evans said in a release. "Hawaii families have to travel a long way to go to theme parks and attractions where animated characters come to life, so we're excited to bring a bit of that magic here to the islands."
The exhibit will cover some of the history of animation, including an in-depth collection of displays and photos from Art Clokey, the creator of Gumby. There are several interactive displays, and visitors will have the opportunity to create their own short stop-motion animation, learn about the storyboarding process, and discover the behind-the-scenes techniques used by artists and animators. There is also a replica of the animation desk and work area of Chuck Jones, the Academy-Award winning creator of Bugs Bunny, Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote and other Looney Tunes characters.
