See Oscar-Nominated Films at Memphis Brooks Museum of Art



Yes, we know the Memphis Tigers take on UAB Saturday night, and we'll all be primed for the game.

But that afternoon, February 11th, you can have some artsy fun. Head to Memphis Brooks Museum of Art at 2 p.m. to see the Oscar Nominated Short Films in the Animation category. After all, the 2012 Academy Awards are just around the corner, so you'll want to be in the know about some possible winners. The screening will include Sunday/Dimanche, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, La Luna, A Morning Stroll, and Wild Life.  The following Saturday, February 18th,  the Brooks will offer a screening of Live Action Shorts nominees.

Also this Saturday,  starting at 11 a.m., kids of any age can do some creating of their own. Creation Station lets children and their parents fashion anything from 3-D sculptures to skyscrapers, using everyday "stuff" like Styrofoam blocks and toothpicks. How hard can it be? Unleash your inner artist.

For more information go to brooksmuseum.org/events.
