This gallery exhibition takes a look behind the scenes, revealing the innovative collaborative process behind the making of the film. Original artwork, both digital and hand-drawn, an exclusive time-lapse video presentation of in-process footage progressing to the finished film, and a revealing documentary that takes us into the DreamWorks Animation studio, show how the colorful world of the movie and its memorable characters were created. An accompanying film series, with screenings every Saturday and Sunday at 1:00 p.m. and special holiday screenings, offers visitors the opportunity to experience the finest films from DreamWorks Animation, including the Shrek and Madagascar series, "Antz," "How to Train Your Dragon," and much more, in a theatrical setting. Note: The documentary "Creating an Epic" (directed by Patrick Hanenberger; 70 minutes) will screen continuously in the Bartos Screening Room from 2pm-close on weekdays and 12-6pm on weekends. The exhibit is organized by guest curator Jenny He and chief curator David Schwartz, presented with support from DreamWorks Animation.

Magnificent Trees of The New York Botanical Garden - New York Botanical Garden
Through April 14, 2013 - Bronx

Larry Lederman, landscape photographer and member of NYBG's Board of Advisors, has spent years walking the garden grounds to observe and photograph trees and vistas in all seasons and at all times of day. Lush images featuring their diversity and visual impact are on view in the gallery space. The New York Botanical Garden is home to more than 30,000 trees, some in woodland, some in groves, and some standing in solitary majesty. Magnificent Trees is lavishly illustrated with photographs by Larry Lederman and accompanied by descriptions by Todd A. Forrest, Arthur Ross vice president for horticulture and living collections at the garden. An authority on the diverse species present across the 250-acre landscape, Forrest details their fascinating histories -- from their vital role in Native American life and culture to their function in neutral territory during the Revolutionary War. Lederman captures their grandeur in hundreds of stunning images and portrays their diversity with photographs that reveal the trees in myriad fascinating perspectives: in landscape views that convey the garden's genius loci; portraits illustrating the architecture and profound visual impact of select trees; remarkable details of flowers, fruit, leaves, and bark; and impressionistic images, abstract in character yet beautiful in composition.
