The Museum of Contemporary Art of Tokyo is presenting an exhibition devoted to Disney Legend Mary Blair titled The Colors of Mary Blair.
Mary Blair (1911-1978) produced concept art and color styling for such Disney films as “Cinderella, The Three Caballeros, Peter Pan” and “Alice in Wonderland,” as well as character designs for the Disneyland Resorts attraction, “It’s a small world”. Her sense of art and color styling, which earned the trust of Walt Disney, has found development in wide-ranging media, including picture books and package designs, and still today commands the respect of numerous professional creators. With the cooperation of Japan’s Studio Ghibli, this exhibition will examine Mary Blair’s life and productions through some 500 works and related materials.
The Colors of Mary Blair is open from Saturday, July 18th to Sunday, October 4th, 2009
