This exhibit showcases four of the greatest animation artists living and working in the field today: William Joyce, Carlos Nine, Bill Plympton, and Peter de Seve. Curatorial thanks to Bill Plympton, who as a youth, was crazy about cartoons and animation and wanted to celebrate some of his colleagues who he considers his heroes.
