Fans of the Quay Brothers will be pleased to know that Parsons The New School for Design is currently hosting a traveling exhibit of 11 rarely seen miniature décors from some of the Quays' most prominent works. Since 1979, the famously reclusive brothers (born and raised in Norristown, Pennsylvania) have produced over 30 enthralling animated works, including the critically acclaimed Street of Crocodiles, an adaptation of the Bruno Schulz novel by the same name, which Terry Gilliam deems one of the top ten best animated films of all time.
Called "Dormitorium: An Exhibition of Film Decors by the Quay Bros.", the show runs through October 4th, and features continuous screenings of excerpts from several Quay Brothers films. Admission is free, and the work is on view daily from 12:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. and late Thursday evenings until 8:00 p.m. at the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, 66 Fifth Avenue at 13th Street.
