Walt Disney Archives exhibits coming to Arlington Museum in Texas

Opening on Sept. 14, 2024, the two collections feature over 300 pieces spanning over 65 years of Disney movie and television history.

“When we meet a Disney character for the first time, we instantly begin to understand them; that is how extraordinarily important costume design is to conveying persona,” said Chris Hightower, president & CEO of the arlington Museum of Art. “By bringing these two exhibitions together for the first time, the Arlington Museum of Art surrounds visitors in the transformative power of wardrobe while celebrating the artists whose creativity and talent is conveyed in every design, every stitch, and every jewel.”
