Her work would pioneer computer animation, winning an Oscar and an Emmy, and inspire a whole new world (but without the credit).
    • This event is free to attend.
    • All are welcome to attend. Must be 18+ or have a parent or legal guardian to attend.**Streetside Brewery’s kitchen will not be open, but you are welcome to bring food in. Also, a number of restaurants are close by and will deliver, including Taglio, Tusculum Grille and Buz Restaurant.
