Norman Rockwell Celebrates Opening of Ice Age to Digital Age
Now through October 31, the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, has put nostalgia on ice and is reaching back to prehistory for it’s summer exhibition, “Ice Age” To The Digital Age: The 3D Animation Art of Blue Sky Studios. Chris Wedge (far left) and Peter de Sève, who head the Greenwich, CT.-based animation studio that did the Ice Age movies, as well as the current hit Rio, have collaborated with the curators at the museum on an interactive installation that examines the development of each character and/or scene from sketch, through clay maquette, to full-blown 3-D animation. Throughout the season, NRM will offer related lectures and animation workshops. On Friday, June 10, supporters of the NRM gathered in the garden at Linwood to celebrate the opening of the exhibition and to meet the Blue Sky Studios team.
