Oregon Cartoon Institute Announces Harry Smith Night @ Hollywood Theatre, May 16/In partnership with Third Annual Northwest Animation Festival

January 14th, 2013 by Anne Richardson · 2 Comments · News

Born in Portland on May 29, 1923, Harry Everett Smith is most famous for creating Folkways Records’ Anthology Of American Folk Music, a 1952 three album set which changed the musical life of the nation.

But  Harry Smith was also a self taught experimental filmmaker.

In partnership with Northwest Animation Festival, Oregon Cartoon Institute is presenting an evening of films by Harry Smith on May 16, just before the Northwest Animation Festival begins on May 17. Both events will take place at the Hollywood Theatre.

Sheldon Renan will introduce Rani Singh, the director of the Harry Smith Archives at the Getty Institute. Rani Singh will introduce the films, which will be projected on 16mm.

After the films, Sheldon Renan, Rani Singh and Darrin Daniel will participate in a panel discussion about Harry Smith’s life and work, and the audience will be invited to ask questions.

Here’s an introduction to Harry Smith by Seattle artist and animator Drew Christie.

    Wow – love Harry and animation! I’ll have to make sure I get the night off.

    And I never realized he was from Oregon.

    That’s why Dennis and I founded Oregon Cartoon Institute! Too few people know this stuff.
