Disney in Paris-a post about a post; or Who's going to make the reservations for Montreal?

Animation historian Michael Barrier has been busy finishing his soon-to-be published (and soon-to-be definitive, most likely) biography of Walt Disney, so he hasn't been updating his blog as frequently as I'd like. But he's finally back--and without his mention of it I'd have had no idea where to find this great blog entry about the incredible exhibit of Disney animation art, artefacts and influences currently on view in Paris:

Il ├ętait une fois, Walt Disney (Once Upon A Time…Walt Disney).

The terrific report is via a blogger that's new to me, Animated Views' Ben Simon. As Barrier points out, though the Paris exhibit is soon to close, the whole thing will move in March to Montreal.
Who's with me? Road trip!

I got back from Paris yesterday and the exhibition really is as good as everyone has made it out to be. If you get a chance to see it in Montreal, do go! It's absolutely incredible and I guarantee that you won't be disappointed!

It's an awesome show- you definitely don't want to miss it! I went to the exhibition twice in the three months I was living in Paris just to see those Evynd Earle paintings in person again... everything else was just frosting on the cake.

I know its not the same as seeing the exhibit in person, but there is a French book about this exhibit available at Amazon-France:

Also, worth checking out is Pierre Lambert's new Disney book:

Jenny!
How are you? It's been a while! I'm probably going to go in April, as soon as school is done with, and before internship starts. Hope all is well, give me a holler via the ol' blog!
