The centenary celebration of Ray Harryhausen‘s wonderful catalog of work opens at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh.
After a lengthy delay, the Ray Harryhausen: Titan of Cinema exhibition is finally set to open to the public tomorrow. The centenary celebration of Ray’s glorious legacy has been hailed as the largest and most comprehensive exhibition on the work of Ray Harryhausen and complements the release of Harryhausen: Titan of Cinema, written by Harryhausen’s daughter Vanessa.
The exhibition, which is open to the public from October 24 to September 5 will showcase original models from Harryhausen’s work, including the iconic skeletons from Jason and the Argonauts, the Cyclops from his iconic 7th Voyage of Sinbad adventure, and his memorable flying discs from Earth vs the Flying Saucers.
Guests will be able to immerse themselves in a wealth of posters, memorabilia, never-seen-before photographs, storyboard illustrations, and the drawings and art that inspired Harryhausen’s creatures and films, all retrieved from his remarkable collection.
Despite the UK being enveloped by the endless COVID pandemic, it is a joy to see Ray Harryhausen’s breathtaking work finally showcased in all its glory. Fans may be unable to cross borders at the moment, but if you’re in the area and able to travel, I’d urge you to do so. This is one exhibition you cannot afford to miss. The Children Of The Hydra’s Teeth demand no less!
The exhibition runs from October 24 to September 5. Tickets will set you back £14-12 (concessions available). Visitors can secure their tickets online via www.nationalgalleries.org.
