The upcoming exhibition, on loan from the world’s only Moomin Museum located in Tampere, Finland, marks the first time “Moomin Animations – Thrills and Cuddles” has travelled internationally. The exhibition highlights the history of “Moomin” animations, which are based on the “Moomin” books and comic strips created by the renowned Finnish artist and author, Tove Jansson.
During the exhibition, visitors will have a chance to explore how the “Moomin” stories have evolved from the first “Moomin” film to premiere on TV, a 1959 German marionette animation film, through to Gutsy Animations’ 3D animated series, “Moominvalley” in 2019. The exhibition is brought to the U.S. by the Embassy of Finland in Washington D.C.
A program of hybrid events, recordings and workshops will also be offered
“The National Children’s Museum has an impressive reputation for offering U.S. families engaging and inspirational STEAM-focused experiences, making it the perfect home for the ‘Moomin Animations – Thrills and Cuddles’ exhibition’s first overseas journey,” says Marika Makaroff, chief creative officer and founder, Gutsy Animations. “We can’t wait to give visitors the chance to explore how we’ve adapted and brought Tove Jansson’s beloved stories to life through our ‘Moominvalley’ TV series and to celebrate the universal values of the Moomins – equality, inclusion and respect for nature.”
