  • Performance : Proust in one hour

    by Véronique Aubouy

    Duration : 60 minutes chrono

    In this performance I try to summarize in 60 minutes In search of past time with my own words, as a story of another time which reveals itself contemporary. I deliver my own intimate and personal perception of this book which radiates in my life. Each performance is another opportunity to explore different zones of the book, proceeding at random, inspired by an aleatory and fickle memory.

Disney

Alumnus Wilfred Jackson

Born in Chicago in 1906, Wilfred Jackson ('28) one of cartoon's greatest directors, worked in a formative period for the budding new medium. Working long hours through the heydays of early animation, Jackson is widely judged to have set the standard for subsequent cartoon directors. At Disney, he was integral to the creation of feature classics like Snow White, and was also a technical innovator in terms of merging sound to pictures.



Alumnus John Hench

John Hench ('28) had a distinguished career as a Disney artist for more than a half century. His work included animation and filmmaking. Known as a lifer, he received the prestigious Disney Legend Award. He began as a sketch artist, and when Walt Disney recognized his special talents, he went on to do background painting and special effects for such classics as Fantasia, Dumbo, Cinderella and Peter Pan. The special effects he created for for the hydraulic giant squid in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea won him an Academy Award in 1954.

By Hugh Hart
 
Cinderella proved her enduring appeal last month when Disney's live-action remake topped the box office. But California artist Camille Rose Garcia cultivates a distinctly darker take on the fair-haired heroine.
 

Alumnus Tyrus Wong in The Wall Street Journal

From ‘Bambi’ to Kites, His Work Flies High

Artist Tyrus Wong, 104 years old, is focus of exhibition at Museum of Chinese in America
 
By Elizabeth Yuan
 
After Tyrus Wong retired from the movie business nearly 50 years ago, he started making kites that he would fly over the beach in Santa Monica, Calif. To this day, bobbing on the end of his kite strings are colorful handmade creatures, including owls, centipedes, a pink-and-yellow caterpillar, a panda—sometimes more than a dozen at a time.
