As part of its first ever "Animation Month," the Plastic Club's exhibition "Movement, Motion, & Sequential Art" includes works related to motion or the passage of time. Organizers of the open-entry, all-media show suggest works such as comics, story boards, blurred or frozen action, movie-like stills, "Moving Model" sketches, Muybridge-esque sequences, short film, animations, kinetic sculpture, and so on. 


The show will be on display at The Plastic Club from February 4th to 22nd, with an opening reception on Sunday, February 4th, from 2-5 PM. It can be viewed during the opening reception or by appointment. The show's prize juror is Jamar Nicholas, award-winning cartoonist and educator.


The Animation Month events culminate on February 24 with the fifth annual "Philadelphia Independents" showcase, a one-night festival screening local and regional animators. Philadelphia Independents is curated by Christopher Magee, independent animator and University of the Arts Assistant Professor of Animation. The event is free but space is limited.
