Disney artifacts on display at museum

Tuesday, November 27, 2001

With walls newly painted in primary colors, the Sanford Museum opens today with a display of Disney artifacts dating back to the 1930's.

Collected by an anonymous Cherokee resident, the collection includes several Mickey and Minnie Mouse characters as well as other pieces of Walt Disney memorabilia.

Refreshments will be served to the public today as they browse through these winsome characters and remember a less stressful time in their lives. Children will be reminded of the fun they have with Disney and will be able to watch a Disney movie each day until Dec. 31 when the display closes.

Words and phrases like "Supercalafragalistic," "Bippity Boppity Boo," and others add to the special atmosphere when museum staff prepare to celebrate Walt Disney's birthday on Dec 5.

No party is complete without cake and the museum is planning a special one for this occasion.

To complete the Disney display, the collector has produced several paintings for the art wall. This artist will also be the artist of the month for December.

For Friday only, the museum will also host two special planetarium shows, one at 1 p.m. and another at 3 p.m.

Both of these also are open free of charge to the public.
