But the very best part of the entire showing was the concept art featured during the end credits. Some of the pieces are absolutely breathtaking! I wish I could buy prints to hang in my someday-will-have office. I loved them! My favorites are those that do not feature the characters, with the exception of a couple with silhouettes. Incredible!
Here is a link to, Noelle Triaureau's blog featuring her pieces. I would have shared them here, but I don't want to break the copyright law... I sent her an email, so if she gives me permission, I will post some here.
I don't know who the other artists are, but the art is around the web, and I think most simply credit "Sony Pictures" or "Sony Animation Studios" or some such. Here are a few, my apologies for not crediting them accurately-- I simply don't know who the artists are. If you do, please send me links so I can share them here.

Some lovely pictures there. I would love to get my hands on the whole collection and choose my favorites and hang them on the wall...
Noelle Triaureau emailed me right back last night, and gave me permission to use some of her images-- she was very nice and even gave me the artists' names for the images above- awesome! She is really very talented, so make sure you check out her blog.
Here are the two of hers that I love most, but even those with characters in them are breathtaking, I would just buy the ones without so they are more decor neutral:
