What's the Art happening on Flower Street?


Since I never seem to remember to ask my friends when I talk to them(and since those I do remember to ask don't know): what in the world are those placards placed over at WED advertising? What sort of show is it?

I apologize to non-locals for the crytpic nature of this post and promise I'll post something of less arcane interest soon, but I've really just got to know. Whatever it is, it's only for employees of the Disney Company.

Jenny - love seeing those original attraction lithograph posters from you. As you may know, the Disneyland USA DVD has, as part of its bonus features, a gallery of attraction lithos. Unfortunately it is not a complete set, but nevertheless the set is about as comprehensive as you can find in one place. I wanted to say thanks so much for the words of encouragement for my blog, as I'm still getting into the blogosphere. And thank you as well for adding me to your links section. Good luck finding the answer to your placard question... I'd be curious to know too.

Hey Jenny -

I know they have a rotating show of orginal artwork from Imagineering that's on display at their library. I think this may be part of that. They just had a collection of Ken Anderson, Marc Davis, and Mary Blair's work up on display. Some stuff I've never seen before - Really amazing and inspiring.

Great question! I've been wondering that as well.

Can anyone take photos of the exhibit for us lowly non-Disney employees? Purdy pleeeese?

Hey Jenny,
Wanted to say Hi, I've been following your blog for awhile now, simply becuase of the fact that we share a similar work address. I work at WDI on Flower and went over to see the exhibit the other day. pbdbstudios is correct that it is just a rotating collection of original theme park, costume and overall conceptual artwork from our archives. Most of which has been seen before, in posters, etc. Except these are the original pieces. Next time I am over that way, I'll see if I can get more specific info.
