Amblin 35: An Art Tribute Featuring Drew Struzan
Steven Spielberg’s iconic production company Amblin Entertainment is in its thirty-fifth year and over three decades has created many of the most beloved movies of all time, spanning every genre. From the Oscar-winning masterpieces Schindlers List and Saving Private Ryan to adored pop culture classics that defined a generation - E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Back to the Future, Gremlins, The Goonies, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and the blockbusters Jurassic Park, Men in Black, Minority Report, War of the Worlds, The Mask of Zorro and so many more.
Founded in 1981 by Spielberg and producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall, the company has brought to life so many stories on the silver screen - from its very first production Continental Divide to this fall’s The Girl on the Train. On the small screen, the company has also created countless hit series, from ER to Amazing Stories to the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.
This December, Creature Features will pay tribute to Amblin with an unprecedented gallery exhibit featuring imagery from, and inspired by, the company’s extraordinary history. The show is headlined by Drew Struzan, the legendary artist who painted so much of Amblin’s most iconic movie poster art, including Hook, An American Tail, The Goonies, and the Back to the Future Trilogy. Drew will display a selection of original, never-before-seen art from his personal archive.
Alongside Drew, dozens of gifted artists will exhibit original paintings and sculptures that honor the Amblin films and television shows that have influenced them.
Participating artists include:
Germaine Barthélémy (Mainger)
Andry "Shango" Rajoelina
AMBLIN 35: AN ART TRIBUTE FEATURING DREW STRUZAN opens at Creature Features on the evening of Friday, December 2nd and will exhibit through Thursday, December 15th. The exhibit is curated by Taylor White and Jack Morrissey.
