Major Disney Exhibition Coming
to New Orleans in November

NOMA is only North American venue for Dreams Come True:
Art of the Classic Fairy Tales from the Walt Disney Studio,
Nov. 15, 2009-March 14, 2010
From November 15, 2009 to March 14, 2010, the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) will present Dreams Come True: Art of the Classic Fairy Tales from the Walt Disney Studio, a major exhibition featuring more than 600 original artworks that shaped legendary animated features including Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.

Dreams Come True: Art of the Classic Fairy Tales from the Walt Disney Studio also will include artwork from the upcoming Walt Disney Animation Studios musical, The Princess and The Frog, an animated comedy from the creators of The Little Mermaid and Aladdin, set in New Orleans and due for release at Christmas 2009.

"We are delighted to present this magical exhibition in New Orleans," said NOMA director E. John Bullard. "Children will love seeing their favorite Disney characters in a museum setting and adults will be taken by the technical skill and emotional depth reflected in these works. It was Disney animators who really led the way in the 20th century toward establishing animation as a serious art form."

Visitors to the exhibition will encounter themed rooms showcasing artwork related to specific animated features. Arranged chronologically by year of release, the rooms will feature, in order: Silly Symphonies, Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and The Princess and The Frog. Film clips will accompany the artwork to demonstrate how individual sketches and paintings lead to a finished celluloid masterpiece.

An adjacent Education Area will highlight Disney's long association with music and also will serve as a mini library for animation research and storytelling programs.

Public hours
Museum hours are Wednesday, noon to 8 p.m., and Thursday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden is open Wednesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
