Empirical Theater at OMSI
Cost: $5, free for ASIFA members!
ASIFA members and family and friends attending with them (who must still pay the $5 entry) get free access to the museum after the show from 4-5:30, or may receive a voucher for future museum entry! LAIKA employees flash your badge, PNCA animation majors show school ID to prove ASIFA membership. Renew your membership online if yours has expired.
Join OMSI in celebrating local independent artists and their recent works. Short, whimsical films and game projects will be shown, and the artists responsible will discuss their inspiration, process and joys in bringing these gems to life. Working cartoony and abstract, stop-motion, hand-drawn and digital, these independents give a great representation of what it’s like to work in a true animation town like Portland.
