Steve will be covering many of the same topics, including the work of Leslie Iwerks’ illustrious grandfather Ub Iwerks, the original artist behind the creation of Mickey Mouse. Additionally, Steve will present a number of animated shorts and excerpts from his extensive collection of animated rarities. Admission for this talk will be free. Ticket holders for Leslie Iwerks’ cancelled lecture may either hold on to their tickets for her rescheduled appearance next year, or obtain a refund.
