Anime Architecture exhibit
February 4, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until April 3, 2020
Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens in Delray Beach, Florida is pleased to announce it will be the sole U.S. stop for Anime Architecture, a new exhibition of architectural backdrops from classic sci-fi anime films.
From location photographs and concept sketches as detailed pencil drawings, through to final expressions as cells in full color, Anime Architecture reveals the creative processes behind Japan’s ultramodern animated films.
On display November 9, 2019 through April 3, 2020, Anime Architecture will feature over 100 technical drawings and watercolor illustrations which pay homage to the artists and designers behind the most beloved anime films and cult classics, Patlabor: The Movie, Tezuka Osamu’s Metropolis, Ghost in the Shell, and Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence.
Among the beautiful hand-illustrations are works by famous animators like Ogura Hiromasa, Watabe Takashi, Higami Haruhiko, Oshii Mamoru, and Takeuchi Atsushi. All of these artists worked during the peak of the use of hand-drawn techniques in animation; this has become a fading art form as artists today construct most films digitally from conception to completion.
The exhibition is presented in association with Les Jardins des Pilotes für Kunst und Kultur.
Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens is located at 4000 Morikami Park Road, Delray Beach.
