MinnAnimate II and Animation Station at Northrup King during Art-A-Whirl


Northeast Minneapolis animator John Akre will install his Stop Motion Animation Station in Northrup King Room 245 during Art-A-Whirl. He will be working on a stop motion animated film in the space and invites anybody dropping by to help create the film. Join him on Friday, May 16th from 5 to 7 pm, Saturday, May 17th from noon to 5 pm and Sunday, May 18th from noon to 3 pm.

After each day’s animation activities, stay and watch a great collection of animated films. On Friday at 7 pm, Saturday at 5 pm and Sunday at 3 pm, MinnAnimate II, a collection of animation from around the state of Minnesota (and Eastern South Dakota) will screen in the same space. Check out the MinnAnimate II program here.

Join John as he animates “North by Northeast,” a short poetic essay by Andy Waltzer.

John Akre is a fiscal year 2014 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is funded, in part, by the arts and cultural heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the Legacy Amendment vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
