Leading Ladies and Femmes Fatales : The Art of Marc Davis, a New Exhibit at The Walt Disney Family Museum Starting April 30
The Walt Disney Family Museum announced a great Marc Davis Exhibit!
On view from April 30 to November 3, Leading Ladies and Femmes Fatales: The Art of Marc Davis spotlights some 70 original pencil animation drawings, conceptual artwork, paintings, cels, and photographs from animator and Imagineer Marc Davis.
Co-curated by the museum’s director of collections and exhibitions, Michael Labrie, and animator Andreas Deja, the exhibition features pieces from Davis’ personal collection, Walt Disney Imagineering, and the Walt Disney Family Foundation’s collection. Leading Ladies and Femmes Fatales highlights Davis’ female characters in film—such as Peter Pan’s Tinker Bell, Sleeping Beauty’s title heroine Aurora and its villain Maleficent, and One Hundred and One Dalmatian’s Cruella de Vil—as well as in live entertainment and fine art.
