When Disney fans tell me they plan to visit San Francisco I always remind them to visit the Walt Disney Family Museum. It’s a love letter to Walt Disney’s excellence. San Francisco is also home to another museum Disney fans may enjoy, the Cartoon Art Museum.
The museum recently moved into a new home where it can display more amazing art and host more events. One of the first events of 2018 will be next Sunday February 11. It features Academy Award-winning stop-motion animation director Nick Park in a Q&A moderated by Pixar director Pete Docter.
Park is best known for creating Wallace and Gromit, as well as Shaun the Sheep. He’s directed those characters in both shorts and features. He also made the delightful feature “Chicken Run.” Disney fans will be familiar with Aardman Studios’ “Shaun the Sheep” animated TV series which aired on the Disney Channel.
The Aardman Animations director will be at the Cartoon Art Museum to talk about his latest feature, “Early Man,” which opens Feb. 16.
