I was completely surprised to find a tent labeled 'Animation' at the Smithsonian's annual Folklife Festival down on the Mall.
The animators will be there from Wednesday until Sunday of this upcoming week.
The two animators (only one of whom was there when I walked by) both appear to work in stop-motion. Annoyingly, I can't find any information about them on the Folklife website - if anyone runs across it, post it in the comments and I'll update this.
Gerald Conn's workspace, where he appears to have been doing stop-motion animation with paper cutouts.
The other animator explains his work to a young boy.
