If you live in or around the New York area or if you’re popping to the city this Fall to do a bit of Christmas shopping, we’ve got a surprise for you! Disney announced this week that “Mickey: The True Original Exhibition” will be unveiled in the city this Fall.
The exhibition was created to commemorate Mickey’s 90th Anniversary and will run from November 8, 2018 – February 10, 2019 at 60 10th Avenue in New York City! Opening hours are Tuesday – Sunday from 10 am – 8pm.
“Mickey: The True Original” will reimagine wonderful moments spanning the length and breadth of Mickey’s career from Steamboat Willie to his evolution into the cultural icon that we know and love today. Here’s a quick video showing you what’s in store!
This magical exhibit will be curated by designer Darren Romanelli and will showcase the talents of many contemporary artists including Kenny Scharf, Amanda Ross-Ho, and Shinique Smith.
Before it’s official opening in November, each artist will create special pop-up installations which will be unveiled at locations across the country. Each pop-up will pay tribute to iconic Mickey Mouse merchandise throughout the ages. These include the Mickey Mouse watch, t-shirt and plush.
