The Museum of Modern Art hosts ‘Pixar: 20 Years of Animation’ exhibit

“The Museum of Modern Art, which has intrigued and perplexed crowds since the 1930s, led the movement to recognize comics and cartoons as ‘valid’ popular art, along the same lines as jazz,” Greg Levine reports for Forbes. “So it’s a natural for the New York City institution to host a retrospective of that contemporary wellspring of animation, Pixar.

“The firm, led by Chief Executive Steve Jobs, has been drawing and key-padding for two decades, linking traditional and digital cartooning. Thus, the ‘Pixar: 20 Years of Animation’ exhibit, boasting more than 500 works of original art on loan for the first time from Jobs’ company. It includes paintings, sculptures and digital installations, as well as a zoetrope, the 19th century motion simulator pre-dating ‘movie’ film,” Levine reports.

  1. Hm. I’m flying through New York City this Christmas and was muttering about extending my layover so I could visit a few friends…

    Grab a “quick” cab from JFK to MoMA…

  2. I sure hope they show the original version of “Knick Knack” where the ashtray bimbo and the mermaid have large breasts, not the flat-chested politically-correct revision released on DVD last year and currently available via the iTunes Music Store!
