The Animation Art Show is an exhibition and auction in aid of Irish Children’s charities. It was first created in 2011 with the purpose of tapping into the bubbling creativity emerging from the fast growing animation industry in Ireland. This years charity auction on Sun 4th November raised €19,500 meaning their small team of volunteers have now raised over €74, 500 since the first public event!
All artwork was kindly donated by animation professionals and students and showcases a wide range of mediums including painting, print, sculpture, plush toys, animation cels and more! The show also features two animation cels from Sullivan Bluth’s All Dogs Go to Heaven – these cels were donated by Animation Ireland Chair, John Phelan.
Not only does it give animation artists a platform to showcase their personal work but every single cent raised goes to charity. In the past, they have sponsored the Jack & Jill Foundation, LauraLynn, the ISPCC and Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland.
This year’s event was in partnership with The Ark. All proceeds went to Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland and The Ark.
Well done to the team at Animation Art Show!
