Bill Joyce Meet the Robinsons interview, sculpture, sketches, paintings, hands-on activities open at Artspace, 710 Texas, Shreveport
An air of freaky holiday surrounded Joyce and friends in the party at Artspace on the eve of the Meet the Robinson's premier. "The 3-D parts were great," exclaimed Vekovius. "It's the best 3-D I've seen," said Joyce. The general recommendation was: pay for the $9 ticket to get the Ray Ban-type glasses and the intermittent 3-D moments.
Artspace has an array of Meet the Robinsons materials designed, said Pam Atchison, to entice visitors from across the US:
- sculptures called maquettes (small models of an intended work).
- sketches with enormous detail.
- hands-on activities for children, downstairs (there's a $5 fee for materials).
- a Disney movie in which Joyce talks about Shreveport and the background to A Day with Wilbur Robinson as well as Meet the Robinsons.
Artspace also has lunch and uptown snacks in the new Cafe D'Agostino, on the mezzanine.
And Times writer Alex Kent has done a righteous job on the event. There's his review of the movie and, even better, a Joyce multi-media interview.
