On view from May 11 to September 16, 2012, this exhibition features 24 drawings and three amazing scrapbooks by Kley, alongside more than 20 Disney works, including sketches, concept art, and maquettes from the Walt Disney classic film Fantasia.
Also on view are four of Kley’s sketchbooks which feature some 50 pages of intricate drawings. The Kley artworks are from Walt Disney’s personal collection and are on view for the first time as a collection in the United States.
