The art of Coraline

I'm back from Yosemite (SO beautiful) and wanted to tell you about the Art of Coraline exhibition at the Cartoon Art Museum that will run from January 24 - February 15, 2009.

The Cartoon Art Museum will present original works of art from the feature film Coraline, which will be released on February 6, 2009. Coraline will be the first ever stop-motion animated film to be shot in 3D (in stop-motion animation, everything seen on screen actually exists in the real world, as opposed to computer-generated animation) and this exhibition features drawings, storyboards, puppets, sets, costumes and more. This exhibit includes almost 80 pieces from the extraordinary world of Coraline, created by a team of over 300 artists.

The Cartoon Art Museum is located at
655 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94105
Tel: 415-CAR-TOON
