As part of the Cartoon Crossroads Columbus (CXC) festivities, the Wexner Center for the Arts presents Sally Cruikshank, animator and illustrator. With a career spanning nearly five decades, Los Angeles–based animator and illustrator Sally Cruikshank explores the boundaries of animated space with a distinctive, cartoony, and often psychedelic style that’s infused with an outlandish sense of humor. Her best-known film, the highly regarded Quasi at the Quackadero (1975), was named to the National Film Registry in 2009. In addition to her independently produced projects, Cruikshank has also created animations for Sesame Street, television commercials, and for Hollywood films, including sequences in Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983) and Ruthless People (1986). Her work has screened at museums, festivals, and art houses all over the world.
