Check Out This Dazzling Collection of Mary Blair Artwork
We admire so many Disney artists and Imagineers here at MickeyBlog but if we had to pick a frontrunner it would be Mary Blair who’s artistry is woven into so many classic Disney films, theme parks attractions and even the resorts! The bright and color work of Mary Blair never really goes out of the style and always feels contemporary with its Mid-Century Modern feel while at the same time conjuring up the nostalgia of Disney days gone by.
Disney’s official fanclub D23 recently shared a few pieces of Mary Blair’s incredible body of work and we had to pass them on to share with you!
Mary is probably best known for the pastel colored celebration that is it’s a small world.
There are so many iconic moments from this beloved Fantasyland attraction. Whether your singalong with the children of the world, watch the clocktower come to life with a fanfare of celebration or check out all of the stunning tiny details that bring the whole theme together, one thing is for certain. The ride has made an impact on nearly every Disney fan.
With it’s a small world being such an integral part of the Disney aesthetic, its hard to remember a time when it was just a concept.
For Blair, it was the perfect culmination of her work with Disney. The attraction expertly combines Blair’s collage-style design and pastel colors.
The ride was initially created for the 1964 World’s Fair and became such a cultural phenomenon that it became an attraction at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
In case you missed it, our MickeyBlogger was on the scene at the Magic Kingdom for the opening day yesterday and managed to capture a full POV ride through of the experience. You’ll find it here.
