An American Animator, Don Bluth

EPMA is delighted to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the El Paso Community Foundation on the Plaza Classic Film Festival with an exhibition by animator Don Bluth. An El Paso native, Bluth grew up watching Disney classics, and later became one of their master animators, known for films such as The Rescuers and Winnie the Pooh. Adapting to the transition from analog to digital technology, Bluth formed Don Bluth Productions. The exhibition highlights Bluth’s range in style and animation technique and will present animation drawings, concept art, backgrounds, storyboards, and digital animations from All Dogs Go to Heaven, Thumbelina, and Anastasia amongst others.  Nearly forty works will be on view, on loan from the Don Bluth Collection of Animation at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia.
