This summer the Frist Center for the Visual Arts will offer a dynamic schedule of public programming including workshops, a film series, a beer tasting, lectures and camps in conjunction with Watch Me Move: The Animation Show.

It also includes works by major contemporary artists such as William Kentridge and Nathalie Djurberg.

As part of an acclaimed international tour, Watch Me Move will be on view in the Frist Center's Ingram Gallery from June 6-September 1, 2014.
