Animation nerds rejoice — this is gonna be a cool one. Featuring more than 130 works of art, Imagimation (yes, the "m" is intentional) presents a timeline of advances in the art and technology of animation, spanning an entire century. These works, selected from more than 29,000 pieces collected by the founders of the Animation Hall of Fame, represent everything from traditional hand animation to the digital techniques major studios like Disney and Dreamworks use today. You'll see production sketches from Shrek, cels from The Simpsons and 1982's cult classic Tron, and even a stop-motion puppet armature from 1933's King Kong. If you've got even a modicum of interest in the art of movie-making, this promises to be a drool-worthy exhibition. When you make it out to Sangre, enjoy this show in the White Gallery, but don't forget to peruse everything else they have on display, including a showcase of work by Colorado artist Radeaux, and a selection of classic cowboy cartoons.
