Cartoon Network: 25 Years of Drawing on Creativity at Paley Center Media exhibits now through November
Cartoon Network has been entertaining audiences both young and old for the past twenty-five years with classic and original animated entertainment. As the only channel that airs cartoons 24/7, fans can check out the exhibit Cartoon Network: 25 Years of Drawing on Creativity at Paley Center Media where they will learn how the channel has changed since it launched back on October 1, 1992 where it started out as a home for favorites like the Flinstones and Jestons to running original content like Space Ghost Coast to Coast and Johnny Bravo.
There they can experience the creative process from sketch to screen and beyond with an in-depth look at Steven Universe, enjoy special exhibits including stop-motion sets from Adventure Time, and have photo ops with sculptures from The Powerpuff Girls and Cartoon Network’s newest hit OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes!
These will be hands-on experiences that will allow audiences to experience what it would be like to be an animator. They will learn how to storyboard map out a scene of their own design using some of their favorite Cartoon Network characters and then use their creativity, imagination, and literacy skills to fill in the dialogue and action boxes for a complete scene.
Children will be given the opportunity to create their own simple animation toys like flip books, thaumatropes, and phenakistoscopes that show how small changes over multiple images make for exciting results!
In addition to that, the Paley Center will screen a handful of Cartoon Network originals including Ben 10, Steven Universe, Adventure Time, OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes!, and The Powerpuff Girls. There will also be a behind-the-scenes look at Steven Universe. The event will be held on the weekends starting October 14 and ends November 19.
The exhibit also features a cool Pop-Up Shop filled with sweet Cartoon Network merchandise!
