Mary Blair

If you grew up watching Disney’s Peter Pan and Cinderella or once drifted along in a boat on the “It’s A Small World” ride at Disneyland, then you’re well-acquainted with Mary Blair’s unique artwork.  Blair was honored as a Disney legend in 1991 for her designs during the golden age of animation. In October 2011, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences honored her with a “Centennial Tribute” at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. There’s even an iPhone app for her “It’s A Small World” design.
