New York City's MoMA exhibition celebrates 20 years

For once, kids might be dragging their parents to the museum instead of the other way around.

A new exhibition showcases some very recognizable images for anyone who has sat in a movie theater over the past decade _ Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Nemo's dad Marlin _ all creations of artists at Pixar Animation Studios.

But anyone visiting the show at the &to=http://english.pravda.ru/culture/2001/10/05/17181.html' target=_blank>Museum of Modern Art who thinks it's going to be all about digital monitors and computer-generated images, think again. "Pixar: 20 Years of Animation" is filled with paintings, drawings, sculptures _ all the traditional tools of animation.

"We wanted to make sure that people understood that computer animation wasn't created by pushing a button," said Steven Higgins, the main curator of the show. "The preparation work is done with traditional pencil and paper just like animation has always been done."

The show opened Wednesday at the museum and runs through Feb. 6. It's the largest animation show MoMA has ever done, and is the first time the material has been seen outside of Pixar's studios in Northern California. The show's run coincides with the studio's 20th anniversary in 2006.

"We want to show our audiences what we consider to be the best work being done in animation at any given moment, and right now it's Pixar," Higgins said.

The exhibit gives a behind-the-scenes look at how Pixar artists create the worlds for their movies, as well as the characters. So there's the acrylic and gouache color script that looks at underground light and shapes for "A Bug's Life," a series of resin sculptures of the creature Sully from "Monster's Inc." and the pencil and marker drawings of Edna Mode from "The Incredibles."

Russia's Ministry for Foreign Affairs is seriously concerned about the state of health of former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. Sergei Skrypal's niece, Victoria Skripal, said that her uncle had already died.
