Exhibit reveals secrets of Hollywood monster maker

Film fans have one more chance to meet one of Hollywood’s greatest monster makers.

Art Center alum Neville Page — who created on-screen beasts for Cloverfield, Piranha 3D, Super 8 and Prometheus — is the mind behind “The Beauty in the Beast: Crafting Creatures.”

The exhibition at the Oceanside Museum of Art, which closes Saturday, features Page’s design progression creating mythical anatomies from early sketches to full 3D models.

In addition to a last look at Page’s process, attendees will be entered to win signed prints of his work. Admission to the exhibition and closing reception (5 to 7 p.m.) is free for OMA members and for Art Center students and alum; $10 for non-members. Page will give a private tour of the exhibition from 2 to 4 p.m., which costs $20 and includes admission.

Born in England and raised in Chicago, Page came to Hollywood at 17 to work in the entertainment industry. In 1990, he graduated with a degree in Industrial Design from Art Center, and four years later, returned to teach at Art Center’s European branch in Switzerland.
