Marc Your Calendar

No, I did not misspell…Marc Davis is the subject of an exhibition at the wonderful Walt Disney Family Museum from April 30 to November 3, 2014. And I feel honored to be given the opportunity to help out putting this show together. 
Here is the Museum’s official announcement:

It will be a very good time to visit the museum, since another incredible exhibition on the art of Mary Blair is being presented until September 2014.

If you interested in the art of Disney Animation you need to see these two exhibitions.

The photo above was taken during production of the Mickey Mouse film The Prince and the Pauper. Joe Grant and Marc gave us notes after viewing the story reels of the film, early in 1990.

And by the way, I wrote a chapter for the upcoming book on the Art Of Marc Davis, which will be available in October!


  1. This is exciting! Oh how I wish I could see it. :D

  2. Thank you Andreas. Now I have a greater reason for my first visit to the museum. And I look forward to this new book on Marc. It's good to see them putting out new printed material on the Disney greats. Any talk about a book on you or the animation staff after the 9 old men? There is so much history, and I'm more than positive it would be a terrific read and coffee table book.

  3. Wow I am so excited for that book and that exhibit!

  4. Oh this is exciting. I live in San Francisco now and I will go see these exhibits. Andreas, are you planning to be at the museum in the near future? I just think I remember you saying you were there recently, talking in front of a group. It would be so awesome to meet you.

  5. I'd love to hear what their take on The Prince and the Pauper was.
