I am really looking forward to the upcoming catalog of the Mary Blair Walt Disney Family Museum exhibition, Magic Color Flair: The World of Mary Blair by John Canemaker.

I asked John: "Is the text brand new or is it very similar to the text which was included in The Art and Flair of Mary Blair? Will we discover many illustrations that we had never seen before?"

To which he answered: "Thank you for asking re the Mary Blair exhibition catalog.
It is a beauty, well designed by the Weldon Owen publishing team, who created the Snow White and Tyrus Wong exhibit catalogs.
"The text, written by me especially for this exhibition and catalog, is new and focuses on the artwork.  There are familiar pieces, but within this comprehensive show of 200 artworks -- from private loaners as well as the WDFM's extensive collection  -- viewers will no doubt find art and photos new to them or rarely seen in person from all areas of Mary Blair's long and varied career."

Can't wait!
