Watch Me Move: The Animation Show, now on display at the DIA until January 5, is the most extensive animation exhibition ever mounted, featuring both iconic moments and lesser-known masterpieces from the last 150 years.

Detroit Institute of Arts Docent Greg Leslie will present a fascinating inside look at this important special exhibit. Watch Me Move: The Animation Show includes animation's great inventors, innovators and artists, from Georges Méliès and Chuck Jones to William Kentridge and Tim Burton, as well as work from animation studios such as Walt Disney, Aardman, Studio Ghibli and Pixar.

DIA visitors have the rare opportunity to see an incredible array of animation techniques in more than 100 animated film segments from across generations and cultures through this exhibit.


Fascinating exhibit

If you are a fan of animation, whether it be early animation, anime, Disney movies, Pixar movies, animated documentaries, or all of the above, you should really check out this exhibit at the DIA. I was there last night and spent almost 2 hours watching various clips and reading the information they had about each type of animation. It was very fascinating and interesting.
