Here's a #tbt photo of our #Club33 visit! #LillianDisney's #harpsichord has become a staple of the club. It prominently features a beautiful 19th Century scene of Jackson Square alongside the #Mississippi River that was hand-painted by #DisneyLegend & #Imagineer Collin Campbell. I've also heard that #SirEltonJohn and #SirPaulMcCartney have both played it. 😎🎹🎶 #heyzenphoto #Disneyland #Disneyland60 #wed #club1901 #legrandsalon #lesalonnouveau #anaheim #neworleanssquare #socal #throwbackthursday #disneyside

NOW on view! “The Magic and Flair of Mary Blair” at the Hilbert Museum of California Art, showcasing more than 20 paintings by the iconic Disney artist. Opening reception: Saturday, Feb. 2, 6 to 8 pm. Admission to the museum is free. Admission to the opening reception is free, and will be an open-house-style event; no ticket or reservation is required. Mary Blair (1911-1978) brought her unique, brilliant sense of style and color to Walt Disney Studios in the 1940s and especially in the 1950s, when she was the lead concept artist for such iconic animated features as "Cinderella," "Alice in Wonderland" and "Peter Pan." She also conceived and designed the look and feel of the highly popular ride "It's a Small World." The exhibition features more than 20 of her original DIsney concept paintings -- come and see why Walt Disney considered Mary Blair his favorite artist! The Hilbert Museum is open Tues-Sat 11am-5pm. Admission is free, and parking in front of the museum is free with a permit obtained inside. Location: 167 N. Atchison Street in Orange, CA.
