Even if he’s not recognized by name, the most casual of Disney Parks guest is likely to be familiar with the work of ‘multimedia dimensional artist’ Dave Avanzino. Among his prized works include shadowboxed themed signs — such as Disney theme park names or lands — in which the letters are comprised of 3-dimensional paper sculpture ‘objects’ that are related to the theme being spelled out.
Those who attended last year’s Disney D23 Expo may have also met Avanzino himself inside the D23 Dream Store. There, Avanzino was testing out a pilot program in which attendees could commission their own personalized sign and choose from a wide assortment of themed alphabets and mix’n'match for the desired effect.
Things must have gone well for the program as the Disney Gallery in Disneyland is preparing to launch the ‘Custom Letter Plaques Program in about a month. Avanzino himself will be on hand to kick off the program on March 1, 2012 at the Disney Gallery, from 10 am – 4 pm. The cost of the sign will run $495 – $995 based on the number of letters (up to 20).

The Disney Gallery located at the base of Main Street, USA at the Disneyland Resort will be playing host to a brand new exhibit celebrating Walt Disney’s legacy, titled ‘All Aboard: A Grand Circle Tour of the Trains of Disney.’ Set to open on November 12, 2011, the exhibit will replace the current one displaying the art of Disney Legend Mary Blair.
On the very first episode of the Disneyland® television series, which aired on October 27, 1954, Walt Disney proclaimed that “I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing, that it was all started by a mouse.” However, an argument could be made that Disneyland® may have been started by a train. Walt’s fascination with trains began when he was a small boy growing up in Marceline, Missouri, in the early 1900s. At one time he actually worked on a railroad, selling fruit, drinks and newspapers to passengers when he was 15. His fascination with trains was rekindled in the 1940s, thanks to a number of Studio employees who were also railroad enthusiasts. This passion culminated in the construction of a 1/8-scale “live steamer” at his home in Holmby Hills. When Walt Disney started to plan Disneyland in the early 1950s, it was clear from the start that trains would play an important part in his creative vision – and trains have continued to be a focal point at Disney parks worldwide.
Now arriving at The Disney Gallery is a Disney railroad retrospective, so all aboard for All Aboard, showcasing the artwork and inspiration for Disney railroads, trains and train attractions throughout the years.
On November 12, 2011, guests at the Disneyland theme park will be invited to join Disney artists Steve Adams, Jeremy Fulton, Jeff Granito, Larry Nikolai, Noah, Olszewski, Maggie Parr and Yakovetic for a signing at the Disney Gallery, from 9 am to 11 am.

According to the Disney Insider Blog, the Noah Fine Art Collective will release a new collection of Muppets-inspired artwork, clothing, skate decks and Disney Vinylmation on November 18, 2011 at D-Street located in the Downtown Disney District of the Disneyland Resort.
Noah collaborated with fellow artists Jon Chase and Dez Einswell on the collection which Noah says, ‘allowed each of us to celebrate our favorite characters, and showcase them in non-traditional formats, all while staying true to the personalities of each character and each artist.’
All three artists will be making an appearance at D-Street on November 18 to support the launch of the collection, with specifics to be announced at a later date.
The timeless classic from Walt Disney, Sleeping Beauty, is captured here in the newest entry in the Disney Dreams collection by Thomas Kinkade. As Aurora and Prince Philip frolic in the foreground with Flora, Fauna and Merryweather as danger looms in the background. Clearly any owner of this painting will find themselves in the pink! No, blue! No, pink!
