Animation fans and those who walk away from a cinematic experience wondering "how did they do that?" will find solace in this exhibition that exposes the behind-the-scenes wizardry at the animation studio that brought us Shrek, How to Train Your Dragon, Antz, and this season's animated triumph Rise of the Guardians, which is the exhibit's major focus. Original artwork, video sequences, production artifacts, and more are on view to quench your creative curiosities. A documentary edited by Patrick Hanenberger, the production designer on Rise of the Guardians, is another enlightening component of the exhibit. And after you've taken in DreamWorks Animations' inner workings, the museum thought you may feel like revisiting some of their classics, so an extensive film retrospective runs concurrently.
