New Orleans Museum to Host Disney Animation Exhibit

A show of Walt Disney Studios’ animation art is planned to open in November at the New Orleans Museum of Art.

The exhibit, titled ‘Dreams Come True: Art of the Classic Fairy Tales from the Walt Disney Studio,’ will present more than 600 items from films such as Snow White through the present.

The exhibit, which will run through March 2010, ties into the Christmas release of Disney’s The Princess and the Frog, a film set in New Orleans and featuring the studio’s first black princess lead character in an animated film.
