Additional Information


Get drawn inside the worlds and characters created by three of Walt Disney Animation Studio’s most talented and prolific artists: Frank Thomas, Ollie Johnston and Andreas Deja. From personal collections including Deja’s own, you’ll see over 80 years of original and historic animation sketches, character studies and concept drawings from Disney classics and deep cuts.

Reserve timed tickets in advance here. For a sneak preview of the exhibition, watch this YouTube video “The Three Fairies,” posted by animator and Disney Legend Andreas Deja.
