Disney Artist's Exhibit



Here's a vintage shot of the tent that was once located near the Plaza Inn, featuring the Disney Artists Exhibit. Not really exhibit, it was a slightly veiled attempt for Disney to sell of its "worthless" stock of animation cells. I should have so many worthless things in my home! Here's a detailed view:



A few previously posted shots of the same area:



Later, the tent was repurposed as an advertisement for the never-to-be built Edison Square:



A detailed view that most likely shows the person who shot the photo:

From what I understand, this was the temporary location of the Art Corner before it opened in Tomorrowland. I never knew it had been used to preview Edison Square. Perhaps it became a preview center once the Art Corner moved.

Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful scans! Nothing is so interesting as vintage Disneyland history!
