The Walt Disney Family Museum is pleased to present MAGIC, COLOR, FLAIR: the world of Mary Blair, a comprehensive exhibition exploring the artistic process and development of one of Walt Disney’s most original, beloved, and influential designer and art directors, Mary Blair. From Cinderella, Peter Pan, Alice and Wonderland, and the development of the visual identity of Disneyland (it's a small world, especially), Blair is one of the most iconic artists from the classic Disney era. 

Tyrus Wong "Water to Paper, Paint to Sky" @ Disney Family Museum, SF

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 14, 2013
A kite springs from a flat dimension into billowing buoyancy, flight or failure, but always guided by aspiration. Tyrus Wong flew his first kite at age seven in 1917, designed his first in 1978, and at age 102 still has the world on a veritable string. Muralist, illustrator, calligrapher and sketch artist, Wong will be celebrated at the Walt Disney Family Museum show Water to Paper, Paint to Sky. The show opens August 15, 2013. Naturally, I had questions for the man who worked on both Bambi and The Wild Bunch.

When researching Mary Blair for our May issue we immediately recognized a kindred spirit in Juxtapoz’s August 2012 feature painter Cathie Bleck who shares a magical realism with the natural world expressed in fluid lines. Cathie shares an early remembrance of the artist who will be featured at the Walt Disney Family Museum’s celebration of Camille Rose Garcia who also cites the influence of Mary Blair. The exhibition opens on Thursday, May 9th.

Alternate Mickeys by Ward Kimball

Illustration // Friday, July 27, 2012
  'Ward’s the one man who works for me I call a genius,' Walt Disney once noted. Ward Kimball was a core animator at the Walt Disney Company between the 1930s and 1970s and was especially noted for his wilder animation style. That eccentricity is visible here in one of Ward's model sheets, where Mickey is drawn in a variety of guises ranging from a flasher to Spielberg's E.T.

Sillem has discovered the community of Val d'Europe. This surreal housing complex is the one that surrounds Disneyland, Paris, a large scale neighborhood erected to accommodate the employees of the nearby destination.
