California Center for the Arts, Escondido Museum
The Art of Fantasia and Other Disney Classics
Enjoy this unprecedented debut collection of over 250 original Disney animation cels, concept sketches, painted backgrounds, and storyboard drawings featuring Disney characters including Pinocchio, Snow White, Peter Pan, and Mickey Mouse.
These masterpieces from the Golden Age of animation are shared by local San Diego collector David Yaruss, whose passion for collecting was first ignited in 1975 at one of the first Comic-Cons, held in the basement of the El Cortez hotel. Yaruss credits that experience with changing his life forever and kick-starting his passion for collecting original Disney animation art, comics, historical items, and books that has grown into a collection he characterizes as “too precious not to share.”
Exhibit runs July 26 through September 7.
Museum features three galleries, a sculpture court, and a gift shop.
