Reception for “Behind the Cels: Selections from SCAD’s Don Bluth Collection.”
Thursday July 9th, 6-8 p.m., Gallery See, SCAD-Atlanta, 1600 Peachtree St., Atlanta, Ga.
The exhibitions department and Jen Library special collections department present “Behind the Cels: Selections from SCAD’s Don Bluth Collection.” Donated to the university in 2005, this collection documents Don Bluth’s and Gary Goldman’s animated features and video game collaborations from 1979 to 2000. There is even a rumor that Gary Goldman might attend.
“Behind the Cels” consists of drawings, cels, storyboards, concept art, backgrounds and photographs from their iconic oeuvre. This exhibition was organized in conjunction with the Society for Animation Studies Conference at SCAD-Atlanta, July 10-12, 2009. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. Works from Bluth’s unrealized project, “Little Blue Whale,” are concurrently on view in the artists books room of the ACA Library of SCAD.
