FJJMA Debuts Disney Animation Cel Exhibition

Disney - queen

 

The Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art is “all ears” this spring as it premieres a new exhibition of Walt Disney animation cels, including Mickey Mouse and dozens of characters from classic Disney films. The art museum at the University of Oklahoma opens A Century of Magic: The Animation of the Walt Disney Studios, Animation Cels from the Collection of Janis Scaramucci and Domer “Jay” Scaramucci Saturday, March 3.

 

The animation of the Walt Disney Studios had a profound impact on the American imagination over the course of the 20th century. A Century of Magic surveys many of the major animated films, beginning with the first feature, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), and concluding with Fantasia/2000 (1999). This exhibition, from a private collection, includes more than 80 cels used in the original production of the animated films and offers visitors the opportunity to view the artistry of the animators’ work.
