I am hoping I can make the three hour trip from Central Massachusetts to New York City for the “Mickey: The True Original Exhibition.”
Earlier this week, the full list of artists contributing to the mouse museum was posted on Oh My Disney by Michelle Lema:
- Tanya Aguiñiga
Aguiñiga’s art will be a wall weaving created from plush ears, blankets, and textiles. It sounds beautiful and comforting all at the same time.
- Daniel Arsham
Arsham will be displaying a piece called “Hiding Figures,” a wall sculpture based off his work in surreal sculptures.
- Katherine Bernhardt
This art will be a giant wall mural featuring Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Mickey’s favorite food (which we’re willing to bet is also our favorite food.)
- Brian Bress
This art will be a video installation and Bress will be drawing while wearing a custom graphic Mickey costume!
- Oliver Clegg
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!
- James Jean
Jean will be displaying photograph prints and hand-drawn illustrations of his Mickey and Minnie Mouse figurine collaboration, which we can’t wait to see.
- London Kaye
The art by Kaye will be a colorful floor-to-ceiling crochet installation inspired by the “The Band Concert.” She had us at crochet.
- Oliver Payne
For Disneyland Resort fans, Payne’s art will be a sight to see! He will be displaying large wall prints of vintage photographs of the Resort.
- Ariana Papademetropoulos
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 drywall. We’re pretty sure it will be epic!
- Brian Roettinger
For comic fans, Roettinger drew inspiration from Mickey Mouse comic strips for his art, which will be an ink graphic wall.
- Keiichi Tanaami
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
Get ready for this art by Romanelli, because we are not prepared. It will be a 3000% Be@rbrick wrapped in reconstructed vintage Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse tees and sweatshirts. YES.
