Located on 5th floor of Centennial Building
A monthly guide to the Illinois State
Museum--a living thing dedicated to a better appreciation of this interesting world.
Dopey and Sneezy, Ferdinand and the furious
matador, Snow-white, and the Ugly Duckling, Donald Duck, Little Hiawatha, and friend Mickey
have all cone to the Museum for the month of
February. There they are--beloved darlings
of the screen, as much a part of our American
Ideal as ice cream and Abraham Lincoln. With
them are the delightfu little buck-toothed
squirrels and 'coons, the plaintive deer, and
the gangling little bull-calf that was Ferdinand before he grew up.
These are some of the original paintings,
made on sheets of celluloid, which were photographed, 16 to the foot of film, in producing
animated cartoons. Celluloids superimposed on
the backgrounds give the effect of an actor
working in a stage setting. The Walt Disney
show, displayed in the north art gallery, will
remain during February.
