Disney Precious Collections, Fine Disney Jewelry For Children, has been selected as the featured product during Dreams Come True: Art of the Classic Fairy Tales from the Walt Disney Studios, at The New Orleans Museum of Art in New Orleans from November 15, 2009 – March 14, 2010.
This once-in-a-lifetime exhibition, which cannot be seen anywhere else, is set to coincide with the premier of Disney’s newest animated feature film, The Princess and the Frog. The exhibition will feature 600 original works instrumental in the development of animated features such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast. In addition, there will be artwork from The Princess and the Frog, an animated comedy from the creators of The Little Mermaid and Aladdin. This current version of the princess and the Frog is set in New Orleans during the 1920s Jazz Age, and is due for release Christmas, 2009.
“We are delighted to present this magical exhibition in New Orleans,” said “NOMA director E. John Bullard. “Children will love seeing their favorite Disney characters in a museum setting and adults will be taken by the technical skill and emotional depth reflected in these works. It was Disney animators who really led the way in the 20th century toward establishing animation as a serious art form.” The exhibition will also feature a children’s section celebrating Disney’s connections with jazz music and the Crescent City. The artworks, on loan from the Walt Disney Studio Animation Research Library, will be accompanied by film clips to demonstrate how individual sketches and paintings lead to a finished celluloid masterpiece.
