Experience Disney’s Art of Animation on FSU’s Campus

The William-Johnston Building Art Gallery is brimming with what doctoral candidate Mery-Et Lescher describes as art and artifacts from the Disney Animation Renaissance. The blanket and movie posters strategically placed to be seen through the floor to ceiling glass walls over looking the atrium capture the attention of student making their way to the second floor, and Mery-et is happy to share with each and every one of them what her exhibit is all about. Each piece in the gallery is from the former Disney Animators personal collection and part of her research on the Disney Feature Animation Studio in Orlando where she worked for more than 15 years. Dr. Robert Nueman and Mery-et teamed up to display how the animation process is art itself and has a place in museums. Read more about the exhibit here and be sure to visit before it leaves the WJB Gallery on October 1st.
