Artwork of all kinds, including animation, took center stage this past weekend during the annual Downtown Burbank Arts Festival.
Booths lined San Fernando Boulevard from Magnolia Boulevard to Angeleno Avenue, featuring a wide variety of artwork, including paintings, sculptures, drawings and jewelry.
One section of the event focused on animation with participants including Gnomon School of Visual Effects, the Art Institute of California-Inland Empire and the Chapman University Dodge College of Film and Media Arts.
The city partnered with Burbank-based Creative Talent Network in hosting the animation section. One of the network’s major upcoming events is the CTN Animation Expo, which is slated for Nov. 21 through 23 in Burbank.
Following the animation theme, chalk artists who created colorful artwork on San Fernando Boulevard were asked to draw animated characters, which included the Pink Panther, Fung Fu Panda and Mickey Mouse, circa his early Steamboat Willy days.
