“Disney100: The Exhibition” features ten large, themed galleries with numerous cutting-edge interactive installations.
The themed galleries, with moving stories, and exciting background information, will take visitors on a journey through 100 years of The Walt Disney Company, celebrating the classics from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” (1937) to “Encanto” (2021), as well as the latest members of the Disney family – Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, and National Geographic.
The Walt Disney Archives will also open its vault of treasures, to showcase hundreds of extraordinary objects, including many of Disney’s “Crown Jewels,” featuring more than 250 rarely seen original artworks and artifacts, costumes and props, and other memorabilia.
“It took several years to plan and assemble the artifacts for ‘Disney100: The Exhibition,’ and many of them will be on display for Disney fans for the first time,” said Christoph Scholz, director of Semmel Exhibitions. “Most of the artifacts are presented from the Walt Disney Archives collection with some additional treasures from Marvel Studios, the Pixar Living Archives, the Walt Disney Animation Research Library, and Walt Disney Imagineering, including some that will be displayed for the first time in Chicago.”
