Miyazaki tribute show comes to Dover Art League

Jul 18, 2017

Artwork inspired by the films of Hayao Miyazaki makes up a new show at the Dover Art League.

The famed Japanese animator’s work includes the films Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Howl’s Moving Castle and Kiki’s Delivery Service.

Dover Art League Interim Director Sidney Rae Moore said the show came out local artists’ love for Miyazaki's animation.

"I feel like this is a great way to get new blood into the Art League, people that wouldn’t really come in here otherwise," Moore said. 

Artists from ages 13-30 created drawing, paintings and cosplay art for the show. 

"It’s just all sorts of people who aren’t normally part of the Art League. Which is really exciting."


The show runs through Aug. 1 at the Dover Art League.
