Festival of the Masters Returns to Downtown Disney
Disney News: Outdoor Arts Festival returns November 9-11, 2012
For the 37th year, the Festival of the Masters returns to Downtown Disney. More than 150 award-winning artists will take part in this outdoor fine arts festival. There’s also live entertainment, kid’s activities and food specialties, so even if one-of-a-kind paintings or limited-edition photography is not what you’re into, venture into the open-air for this prestigious event. Here’s what to expect:
Type of Art:
- glass art
- limited-edition fine art
- sidewalk chalk art
- Disney collectibles
Disney Artist Village
There will be a varied selection of art from Disney artists as well, from Disney character art to creations by Walt Disney Imagineering. Along with feature artist appearances, stop by the Art of Disney where artist Dave Avanzino will create prop-like elements based on theme park signs, fonts and attractions.
This is the first time that there is a special area where more than 30 juried emerging artists compete for awards and feature their work. There are also interactive activities that can bring out your own inner emerging artist such as the craft section, “Make It Take It” crafts, contributing to a mosaic-like mural in the “Michaels Master Mural” or taking part in a do-it-yourself fashion show.
