The Art of Walt Disney

Join Dr. Keri Watson for a comprehensive look at the art and life of Walt Disney. Walt Disney made significant contributions to the history of animation, film, and architecture, not to mention life in Florida. This presentation offers an in-depth look at his impact on the development of cartoons, short and feature-length movies, and theme parks. Audiences will also learn about Walt Disney’s contributions and impact on the history of Florida. A sub-theme of the presentation will focus on the relationship between high art and popular culture, as exemplified by the Disney Studio and Walt Disney World.
