(released 1/4/2006)

The Art and Culture Center of Hollywood presents "Spike & Mike's Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation" on Thursday, Jan. 12 at 7 p.m. From the leading presenters of cutting-edge animation and cartoons for adults, this film includes quirky hand-drawn gems and elaborate computer-generated productions. The movie screening takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Art and Culture Center, located at 1650 Harrison Street, and is free with admission.

This film is presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Art in the 'Toon Age," which is on display at the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood's galleries now through Sunday, Jan. 15.

'Toon-age artists embrace radical new processes and innovations, while working within what appears to be a traditional idiom. All of these artists clearly admire ads, comics, and packaging graphics. What they have done is to transform commercial art into the finest of fine art. Also included are a number of historical relevant comics. Featured in this exhibition are: Carroll Dunham, Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, Yoshitomo Nara, Julian Opie, Sue Williams and cartoon artists R. Crumb, Art Spiegelman, and Chris Ware.

Exhibition hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m. The admission cost is $5 for adults, $3 for students and seniors and free to Center members as well as children 13 or younger with an adult. Group discounts and free parking are available.

The Art and Culture Center of Hollywood is a vibrant, regionally distinct, contemporary visual and performing arts organization offering visual art exhibitions, theatre, music and dance performances. Educational programming includes adult and children's arts classes, after-school programs, camps and other art curriculum.
