You may find this hard to believe, I do, but 250 pieces of artwork from a 1960 touring exhibit of Disney Animation Art to promote the Sleeping Beauty movie were ‘found’ in a Janitor’s Closet in Japan. If “Janitor’s Closet” is a euphemism for Private Collection, then I understand.
The artwork is being returned to Disney and hopefully will be made available for viewing to the general public soon. May I suggest an exhibit at Disneyland and Walt Disney World?
