Since the 1980s, the Michael Eisner-created Disney Television Animation department of the House of Mouse has been churning out high-quality content chock-full of adventure and comedy designed for the small screen. And over the next couple weeks Southern California’s Gallery Nucleus is hosting an officially-sanctioned art show to pay tribute to that three-decade legacy.
“An Art Tribute to Disney Television Animation” curates dozens of terrific paintings and drawings inspired by TV shows starting with the Disney Afternoon (though it’s entirely different from the unofficial Disney Afternoon art show we saw last summer in Anaheim) and running through contemporary Disney cartoons like “Gravity Falls” and “Big Hero 6: The Series.”
WATCH FULL GALLERY TOUR:
Other popular shows represented include the beloved “DuckTales,” “TaleSpin,” “Adventures of the Gummi Bears,” “Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers,” “Darkwing Duck,” “Star vs. the Forces of Evil,” “Tangled: The Series,” “Lilo & Stitch: The Series,” “Timon & Pumbaa,” “Gargoyles,” and “Pickle and Peanut.” Prints from selected art pieces are available for purchase on-site, and if you’ve got more extra cash lying around you can even pick up one of the original works.
For more information on “An Art Tribute to Disney Television Animation” (which runs from now through Sunday, March 11th in Alhambra, California) be sure to visit the official Gallery Nucleus Website.
