Join Oscar-winning animator, prolific historian, and past Wexner Center Artist Residency Award Recipient John Canemaker as he examines the extraordinary Disney classic Pinocchio through the individual work of lead animators Vladimir “Bill” Tytla and Milt Kahl. Many historians consider Pinocchio to be the greatest achievement in hand-drawn, feature-length animation, and in this talk Canemaker illuminates the painstaking processes that brought the film to such creative heights. Following the presentation and Q&A, stay for a screening of Pinocchio in a beautiful restoration from Disney Studios. (talk approx. 60 mins.; film 88 mins., DCP)

Canemaker is the author of The Art and Flair of Mary BlairThe Lost Notebook: Herman Schultheis and the Secrets of Walt Disney’s Movie Magic, and Winsor McCay: His Life and Art, among other publications. Meet the animator and scholar when he signs copies in the Wexner Center Store at 6:30pm.
