New Exhibit Celebrating 100 Years of Disney Coming to Philadelphia in 2023
It’s hard to believe but in just two short years, Disney will be celebrating 100 years of magic! To celebrate, The Walt Disney Company has just announced that production is already underway on an exhibit that will showcase the company’s rich history and legacy to debut at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia in February 2023.
The exhibit at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia will feature The Walt Disney Archives’ hundred of historical Disney artifacts as well as an immersive environment of sight and sound spanning 15,000 square feet that will highlight stories and characters from The Walt Disney Company’s last century.
Rebecca Cline, Director of The Walt Disney Archives said, “As we approach the 100th Anniversary of The Walt Disney Company, we at the Walt Disney Archives are incredibly excited about traveling a new and unique exhibit marking a century of unparalleled innovation and storytelling in the world. This groundbreaking exhibition will celebrate the wonder of Disney, from 1923 to the present and into the future.”
“It’s thrilling to bring Disney’s crown jewels—art, memorabilia, costumes, props, and one-of-a kind treasures—to public view—and to explore the story of one of the world’s most creative entertainment companies,” said Historian and Co-Curator Paula Sigman Lowery, and internationally recognized expert on Walt Disney and The Walt Disney Company. “Many of these objects have never been before seen outside the company’s archival, animation, and Imagineering vaults.”
President and CEO of The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, Larry Dubinski, also added, “The Franklin Institute is thrilled to debut this world premiere exhibition in Philadelphia during the remarkable 100th anniversary of The Walt Disney Company. We look forward to celebrating the legacy of a creative empire synonymous with imaginative storytelling, innovation, discovery, and wonder that spans generations and delivers widespread, undeniable global appeal.”
The Walt Disney Company “Disney Centennial” exhibit coming to The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia in February 2023 is yet to be named. There will also be a second, parallel staging for those outside the United States that will have its global debut in March 2023.
