Artists Announced for “Mickey: The True Original Exhibition” Coming to New York City
Today, we are learning even more about the “Mickey: The True Original Exhibition” coming to New York City next month. If you aren’t yet familiar with the installation, it is being put together to celebrate Mickey Mouse’s 90th birthday and will begin on November 8, 2018 and run until February10, 2019.
We know now the artists that will be featured in “Mickey: The True Original Exhibition”! They are as follows:
Aguiñiga’s art will be a wall weaving created from plush ears, blankets, and textiles. Doesn’t it sound beautiful and comforting all at the same time?
Arsham will be displaying a piece called “Hiding Figures,” a wall sculpture based off his work in surreal sculptures.
Bernhardt’s art will be a giant wall mural featuring Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Mickey’s favorite food.
This video art installation will feature Bress drawing while wearing a custom graphic Mickey costume!
We love “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” from Fantasia, and this art by Clegg will be an oil painting on recycled wood canvas featuring the scene. It’s sure to be gorgeous!
Jean will be displaying photograph prints and hand-drawn illustrations of his Mickey and Minnie Mouse figurine collaboration in the “Mickey: The True Original Exhibition”. Can’t wait to see it!
The art by Kaye at the “Mickey: The True Original Exhibition” will be a colorful floor-to-ceiling crochet installation inspired by the “The Band Concert.” She had us at crochet.
For Disneyland Resort fans, Payne’s art in “Mickey: The True Original Exhibition” will be a sight to see! He will be displaying large wall prints of vintage photographs of the Resort.
The art by Papademetropoulos will be a watercolor painting with a lot of heart—it depicts an old photo of a Mickey Mouse figurine on her grandmother’s bedside table. Adorable!
This art will be a colorful Mickey Mouse print, emerging from behind a layer of dry wall. We’re pretty sure it will be epic!
For comic fans, Roettinger drew inspiration from Mickey Mouse comic strips for his art, which will be an ink graphic wall.
Tanaami’s art will use wood and crushed glass as a frame to highlight a large, colorful pop-art print. How cool!
DARREN ROMANELLI, AKA DRX
This art by Romanelli is sure to be a trow back. It will feature bricks wrapped in reconstructed vintage Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse tees and sweatshirts. Romanelli for the win!
