The 9 Old Men at the Walt Disney Family Museum

A once in a lifetime exhibition is being presented at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco. NINE OLD MEN will be open to the public on May 17, it will run into January of next year. The curator is Don Hahn, who got in touch with family members of the nine, and was able to secure rare items, such as personal art, student work and pieces associated with their hobbies.
Below are a few examples. The majority of art will of course be animation related. Hundreds of rough drawings, flip books  and a new documentary film.
