Pixar museum exhibit opening in the U.S. (again)

The exhibit PIXAR: 25 Years of Animation opens this Saturday, July 31, at the Oakland Museum of California, up the road from Pixar. It includes hundreds of drawings, paintings, and sculptures used in the development of Pixar films, as well as the Toy Story 2 zoetrope. (The latter, which sprang from the fertile mind of Pixar chief scientist Loren Carpenter, is a series of sculpted Toy Story 2 settings that rotate in sync with strobe lights to create a 3D animation effect.)

I enjoyed an earlier version of the exhibit four or five years ago, at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the starting point of a tour that took it to Europe, Asia, and Australia. It’s scheduled to be on display in Oakland through January 9, 2011.
