ArtYard Live Animation Festival: Closing talk with the curator, artists, and a special guest
Award-winning director and animator Lynn Tomlinson joins Richard Herskowitz, ArtYard Live Animation Festival Curator, to lead a lively conversation with all four animators revealing their creative journeys and their art of fusing the real and unreal through live animation.
Curated by Richard Herskowitz, the Live Animation Festival includes performances by animators Laura Heit, Melissa Ferrari, Stacey Steers, and Miwa Matreyek – four talented artists whose work emerges at the intersection of visual and performance art, installation, and film.
“The Live Animation Festival is not something that can be contained on a screen. It has to be experienced live,” Herskowitz said. “There is something wondrous about experiencing animated films merged with live performance, whether it’s an artist creating visions before your eyes with an antique “magic lantern” or another artist shadow dancing inside her animated landscapes.”
This is a free event.
