Can you believe it’s been 5 years since Cars Land opened in California Adventure Park at Disneyland? To celebrate the opening and also the release of Cars 3 this weekend, Disneyland will be hosting two artist showcase events this month at Ramone’s House of Body Art inside California Adventure Park on June 17 and 24.
Lisa Bergman, merchandise product developer for WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney District, was recently interviewed about the Disney-Pixar’s “Cars”-inspired artwork being showcased and had this to say:
“We are delighted to feature some of our WonderGround Gallery artists at Cars Land this month,” exclaimed Lisa. “Each artist will offer their own interpretation of the sights or characters found in this wonderfully immersive land. The best part about these events is our guests can meet these talented artists. These events are another fun way to celebrate an exciting month that starts with the release of Disney-Pixar’s ‘Cars 3’ in theaters on June 16.”
On June 17, guests can meet Jerrod Maruyama and Joey Chou from 2 to 4 p.m. Jerrod’s work (above left) is titled, “Cutest Little Town in Carburetor County,” while Joey’s art (above right) is called, “Race Around Radiator Springs.”
Jeff Granito (“Cruising to Ka-Chow”), Max Grundy (“Flomotion”), Michael Murphy (“Cozy Cone Arrival”), and Michelle Bickford will appear on June 24 from 2 to 4 p.m. Michelle will offer two pieces – “New Wheels!” (shown above) and “Cars Land Panorama” (the latter is an one-of-a-kind original piece of artwork).
While visiting Ramone’s House of Body Art, check out some of the newest Cars Land and Radiator Springs Racers products. Guests will find apparel and accessories for adults and kids including a new Radiator Springs Racers logo pin.
For all Artist Showcase events, there is a limit of two items signed per artist, per guest. Disney kindly ask guests do not bring personal items to be signed. Appearances are subject to time and availability and are not guaranteed. Separate admission is required to enter Disney California Adventure park.
