The Magic of Disney Art
Hilbert Museum of California Art
167 N Atchison St
Orange, CA 92866
(714) 516-5880

The Hilbert on the campus of Chapman University functions as a specialized cultural destination, tailoring its focus to include a look at the art and culture of California, primarily from 1920 to 1970. It would be impossible to tell the story of Southern California during that time and not include the impact that Disney has had on contemporary culture through it’s artistic contributions. Some of California’s most renowned artists found employment with Disney as innovation in animation grew. Names like Eyvind Earle, Mary Blair, Phil Paradise, and Phil Dike are all represented in the collection that includes animation cells and concept art for timeless films like Pinocchio, Lady and Tramp, and The Jungle Book.
