MSI After Hours: Get Animated

Friday, September 21, 2018 from 7–11 p.m.

Discover the fascinating science behind some of the most beloved animated films, and hear from the creators of the latest Pixar short during the next adults-only party, MSI After Hours: Get Animated. On Friday, September 21, guests can watch the Pixar animated short, “Bao,” and attend an exclusive conversation with producer Becky Neiman-Cobb and director Domee Shi, the first woman to direct a Pixar short.

MSI After Hours: Get Animated guests will also have access to the Museum’s latest exhibit, The Science Behind Pixar. Get a behind-the-scenes look into the Pixar process and discover how art and science blend to make some of your favorite characters come to life through more than 40 interactive elements.

Guests will learn different animation methods with hands-on activities throughout the night. Design a flipbook, animate a gif, and discover the technology behind one of the oldest animation tools: a zoetrope.

From 7 – 11 p.m., guests can enjoy cocktails, beer, snacks, and sample free bao courtesy of Wow Bao. 

MSI After Hours: Get Animated is a 21+ event, and tickets will not be available at the door. Admission costs $40 and includes free on-site parking in our convenient underground garage, snacks, a complimentary cocktail and exclusive access to select exhibits. A cash bar will also be available.

Tickets for The Science Behind Pixar and the conversation with Domee Shi and Becky Neiman-Cobb require timed-entry tickets; please select times at checkout. (Exploring The Science Behind Pixar exhibit takes approximately one hour.)
