Category: North West Component

 The North West Component has selected an activity each month for us to get to know each other. We all work hard and deserve some down-time, right?!  You are encouraged to invite a non-member RDH friend to register so they can see what shenanigans we are up to in the ODHA!

Come enjoy a day at the Portland Museum with your ODHA colleagues!

We will plan to meet on the steps at the front door of the Portland Art Museum at 1 pm and all go in together.  

Guillermo del Toro: Crafting Pinocchio is a celebration and exploration of the inventiveness, passion and artistic cooperation that goes into making a cinematic vision come to life. Now in theaters and streaming on Netflix beginning Dec.  9, 2022, the movie Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchiowas ten years in the making, and conceived for international audiences of all ages. The film’s major themes highlight the importance of non-conformity and the love and understanding passed between parents and children—and above all, showcase del Toro and team’s incredible passion for the art of stop-motion animation. Many are already deeming it a “masterpiece.” This exhibition is coming to Portland from The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.

Showcasing the collaborative art, craft and storytelling of the film, the exhibition immerses audiences in its world, featuring iconic creatures, set pieces, stop-motion animation technology, and fantastical visual and sound elements.  At more than 8,000 square feet, the exhibition will guide audiences through the creation and collective artistry of del Toro’s work. Featuring the inspirations and inventiveness of the artists that helped bring the story to life, Guillermo del Toro: Crafting Pinocchio will celebrate how far imagination can push us into making our dreams a reality.

The Portland Art Museum’s presentation of Guillermo del Toro: Crafting Pinocchio will expand on the richness of the local stop-motion animation community by giving visitors a look inside the artists’ process.
