Plaza School of Art

In Disneyland, above the Main St. Photo Supply Company at the hub end of Main St. USA, is a wonderful window.

Plaza School of Art

Herb - He did the first rendering of Disneyland for Walt and he did design work for Sleeping Beauty Castle, New Orleans Square and the Indiana Jones Adventure. A Brush with Disney: An Artist's Journey, Told through the words and works of Herbert Dickens Ryman

John - He did the original concept and design for Space Mountain and largely responsible for the look of every Disney theme park. Author of Designing Disney: Imagineering and the Art of the Show.

Peter - He did the painting of Disneyland that Walt used on the television show, he was a matte painter for Mary Poppins and painter for WED. The Garden Within: The Art of Peter Ellenshaw.

Truly an inspiring window. Teaching the rest of the world what a theme park is supposed to look like.
