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.

Known for their wildly creative and timeless films, Portland’s LAIKA Studios has been reinventing the art of stop-motion animation for more than 15 years, fusing traditional techniques and revolutionary new technologies in their pursuit of exceptional handmade storytelling.

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.
