Latest bulletin:
The wonderful Stacia Martin has graciously agreed to create a colorful presentation on the art and artists of Walt Disney Records. Legendary Disney artists like Mary Blair, Art Riley, Paul Wenzel, X Atencio, Peter Ellenshaw, Al Dempster and many more have created magnificent drawings, paintings and art direction for Disney albums over the last 50 years. Don't miss perhaps your only opportunity to see these artists recognized!

Stacia's presentation will take place on Sunday, November 5, with time to be determined.
 
A Change of note!! We are not having the Disneyana sale on Sunday.

We are looking to add 2 more presentations, all in the Level 3 room of the SCI-FI Museum as stated above. Not much time for anything else!
