    This summer Norman Rockwell Museum pays tribute to Walt Disney, another American icon of the 20th Century, with a special exhibition celebrating the 75th anniversary of the acclaimed visual storyteller’s first feature-length animated film. “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: The Creation of a Classic” will be on view at the Museum through October 27, 2013.

The exhibition celebrates Walt Disney’s vision and the artistry of his dedicated staff, illustrating how they shaped and defined an entirely new American art form through their creation of this groundbreaking film.

Joining us is exhibit Curator and Creative Director of the Walt Disney Animation Research Library, Lella Smith who guides a staff of 24 in exhibiting, archiving, and digitizing the library’s collections. We also welcome, the Chief Curator for the Norman Rockwell Museum, Stephanie Plunkett.
