In celebration of the inaugural International Production Design Week, and partnership with the Production Designers Collective, the Art Directors Guild has created an immersive digital exhibit to celebrate the past, present and future of Production Design.

The exhibit contains historical galleries featuring sketches, set drawings, concept art, stills and production artwork, as well as iconic sets re-imagined at full scale using Unreal and Twin Motion, allowing guests to stand in the middle of the designs. The experience brings together the full range of mediums used in the art of Production Design from pen and ink to the most current technology, and showcases original environments that unite them into a one of a kind experience.

The fully digital exhibit is roughly 60 minutes in length during which the audience is standing in a large 360° video stage.

All guests must RSVP for a specific exhibit session.
Each RSVP guarantees guests one exhibit experience.
All guests will need to present a valid ID upon entry.

Session 1 10am
Session 2 11:15am
