Remember how the Seattle Experimental Animation Team has been making work on one portion of the big red construction wall on Capitol Hill? Specifically a portion of wall near the cone fountain inside Cal Anderson Park?
Well, this four-year project involving rotating animators is called Wallrus, and on Thursday, Oct 11th as part of the Capitol Hill Art Walk we are turning the wall into a screening space, and projecting the work created on the wall in the last two years. Here is the Facebook event.
Specifically you will get a chance to see Clyde Petersen‘s video for The Thermals, animated in chalk, Tess Martin‘s short film The Whale Story, animated in paint/pixellation, and works in progress from Amanda Moore, Webster Crowell (you may remember people roaming the park in rocket suits a few month ago?) and Otto Bulut (actually animating this weekend! So stop by the park to check that out also).
Since it’s art walk there will be snacks, beverages and live music!

Clyde Petersen, Amanda Moore, Tess Martin, Webster Crowell and Otto Bulut host three screens with finished videos and works-in-progress in an evening including live music, snacks and rocket juice.
