From the creative minds that brought you Coraline, The Boxtrolls, ParaNorman, Kubo and the Two Strings, and the Golden Globe® -Winning Missing Link, LAIKA and MoPOP present Hidden Worlds: The Films of LAIKA.

This traveling exhibition showcases the creativity, artistry, and innovation that make the studio a global leader in stop motion animation. Visitors will be immersed in the “hidden worlds” of LAIKA — both the magical settings the characters inhabit and the behind-the-scenes wonders of producing these modern classics.
