Nucleus warmly welcomes you to a gigantic, visual feast in micro proportions! Working within the 2×2 – 6×6 inch guidelines and in both traditional 2D and 3D media, this exhibit will feature an explosive roster of talent working in animation and visual development.

December 11, 2010 – January 4, 2011
Opening Reception / Dec 11, 7:00PM – 11:00PM

The Micro Show began with a group of animators and friends working at Disney. Creating personal, bite-size works of art was a respite from their daily creative grind and eventually they gathered all the pieces and displayed them in modest exhibits. On December 11, we bring you the most macro of the Micro Shows thus far. Featuring the talents working at Disney, Pixar, and Dreamworks, artists were invited to do everything but wallpaper our upstairs Atrium gallery with their micro-sized creations.
