An evening of animation and poetry in celebration of the American poet Walt Whitman’s 200th birthday. Portland-based animator Marilyn Zornado reached out to a handful of other animators from around the globe including Northwest-based artists Devon Damonte, Teresa Drilling, Deanna Morse, Barbara Tetenbaum, and Academy Award-winner Joan C. Gratz, to create new short works representative of Whitman’s writings. Interspersed throughout the screening will be readings of Whitman’s poems by special guests. This screening is in partnership with David Abel and Passages Bookshop. Complete Program can be found here.
Please join us for a reception prior to the screening.
