I just received the below email from my friend Jim Hollifield about the exhibition catalog "Where Art Might Happen: The Early Years of CalArts." Jim mentions:
[It's a thick publication, an exhibition catalog about the institution's history. There's a substantial chapter about the founding of Cal Arts and the Disney family's connection. See this image in the Amazon previews. Much of the publication focuses on artwork created by alumni and students; however, this particular chapter was worth the purchase.]
I just ordered a copy.
