WeMake is proud to host a night of process, art, and inspiration with Gary Baseman—artist, designer, painter, animator, toy designer, and TV/movie producer.
FRIDAY NIGHT June 7, 2013 at The Hollywood Theatre
Meet Gary in person, be inspired by his work, and peep inside his sketchbooks! Like always, attendees will participate in an informal sketchXchange throughout the night.
Gary’s work has been published in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, Time, and Rolling Stone; and he designed the best-selling game “Cranium.” He created the three-time Emmy and BAFTA award-winning animation series, “Teacher’s Pet,” earning him credit as one of the 100 Most Creative People in Entertainment named by Entertainment Weekly Magazine. The Los Angeles Times has described his art as “adorably perverse,” humorously playful and dark, childlike but often with adult themes. His fine art has been displayed in galleries and museums in Brazil, Germany, Israel, Italy, Russia, and all over the United States.
Proceeds from this event will help our continuing efforts to give back to the community by supporting arts and music education. WeMake Celebrates, an interactive party celebrating design, art, and the spirit of community, it will be the big bash at the end of Design Week Portland, Saturday, October 12th at Sandbox Studio.
This year we will also contribute to digital learning with Hollywood Theatre’s Animate It!, a program that teaches the basics of stop motion animation to at-risk kids.
Tickets will be available for purchase soon via The Hollywood Theatre box office. More info to come!
