Next Saturday, April 18th, Cal Arts is presenting a Jules Engel Centennial Celebration in downtown L.A., at the RedCat theatre. The 5pm program, “The Influence of Jules Engel on Contemporary Animation”, will include a roundtable discussion with distinguished Cal Arts Alumni including Jorge Gutierrez, Steve Hillenburg, Mark Kirkland, Mark Osborne, Joanna Priestly and Henry Selick.
That will be followed by a cocktail reception and exhibition of fine art by Jules Engel at 7pm. Ticket prices are a bit steep, but the event is a fundraiser to support The Jules Engel Endowed Scholarship Fund. For more information check the Cal Arts Website.
