Park Welcomes Phil Davis as our 2022 Diana Lee Fox ’75 Resident Artist


Park welcomed Phil Davis to campus today as our 2022 Diana Lee Fox ’75 Resident Artist. Phil is an animator, a filmmaker, and the founder of the Sweaty Eyeballs Animation Festival at Baltimore’s own Parkway Theatre.

This morning, Phil spoke with Upper School students about how his fascination with the world of animation started at a young age (watching the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), and how he has carried that passion throughout his life and career. Students also had the chance to create their own animations on 16mm film strips, and learn more about Phil’s work and techniques during a workshop in the afternoon.

This fall’s exhibition, with Abandon, is about sparking joy and exuberance; we were thrilled to have Phil help illustrate, animate, and share that message with us!
