One of the many things that Disney is really good at is Art. They have taken their talent for Art and introduced a new Festival for guests to explore in 2017. We were thrilled to discover that Disney Artist Thore, and Artist Team Member Doreen, are painting a 108 foot mural during the inaugural Epcot International Festival of the Arts.
As this was opening weekend for the Epcot International Festival of the Arts, Thore and Doreen were just beginning work on the mural. Thore shared with us the Disney design concept art for the mural and explained that it will take 6 weeks to complete the 108 foot mural. He spent much of the morning drawing and measuring the first section. Artist Team Member Doreen Muir was mixing and measuring paint colors while we were there.
We checked back with Thore around 4:00pm and saw that they had begun painting the first section. He had also been working on the drawing that leads into the second section. On our way out at 8:30pm, we were able to see the additional progress that had been made with the painting of the mural.
You can find Thore and Doreen’s mural along the walkway beside Club Cool as you head towards the Imagination Pavilion. Be sure to walk through and check the progress of this beautiful mural during your visit to the Epcot International Festival of the Arts. Stay tuned here to Chip and Company as we present updates on Disney Artist Thore and Artist Team Member Doreen’s 108 foot mural painting during the next 5 weeks of the Festival of the Arts.
