Bringing Imagination Into View

A New Futures Await Exhibit

Opening Reception

Thursday, February 17, 2022
4pm - 7pm

"It’s emerging ahead, but you can’t quite make it out. It’s a world you haven’t yet visited. A neighborhood that seems unfamiliar, or a vista you’re taking in for the first time. You’re encountering the expression of someone’s vivid imagination… but it takes an “art department” to help you see it come to life."

The art department is the team of hardworking individuals responsible for creating the overall look of a television show or feature film, as determined by the director. Together, they plan, design, and guide a creative process that helps bring the set to life, being mindful of every detail that can support the overall vision.

Because of their amazing work, you can be transported to new places and environments. You can visit locations you haven’t seen and become immersed in realities you hadn’t previously imagined.

At “Bringing Imagination Into View” you will experience the process firsthand and see the artwork that helped make some of your favorite places and characters into reality. Welcome to the future, taking shape before your very eyes.

An exhibition of concept art, storyboards, graphic design, scenic, matte paintings, and other production artwork for live action filmed entertainment by members of the Art Directors Guild, Local 800 organized and curated by Prof. Amarpal Khanna
