Snow White in DCA

Finally I got to see the Snow White exhibit in Disneyland's "little sister" park, Disney's California Adventure. Until mid-March, there will be more to this park than only the Soarin' over California attraction and the Pixar zootrope!
A little sampling of drawings from Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to be precise. Story sketches (including ideas for the bed building sequence), animation drawings, layouts and backgrounds. The cel-setups are (very good) reproductions, but the drawings are the real deal, even accrediting some of the artists -
Art Babbitt, Maurice Noble, Joe Grant, Ferdinand Horvath! The exhibition was made for Snow White's 70th, so I know it is "old news." I found it to be interesting enough to mention it here, though.
Here are a few pictures I took in there today...
I have been traveling and working - thus no updates, sorry! More to follow really soon!

Thanks for posting these stills. As a New Yorker, I don't get to Disneyland much, but these images are priceless. That painting of the cottage is sterling. Whereas the other two so obviously reflect the prim fairybook artwork of the day, the cottage is bold painting. It feels rushed off, but obviously took some time. Yet it captures so much. I'd love to see it in person, as well as the rest of the exhibit.
Thanks for giving me the chance to get a feel of the show.
