Special exhibit: The creation of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

The Walt Disney Family Museum, here in San Francisco, is currently featuring a limited-time exhibit on the creation of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This is one of my favorite childhood films, and it warms my heart to see Emma love it as much as I do. So this has been something on our must-see list.


Snow White exhibit building entranceLast weekend, we spent an afternoon at the museum just to see Snow White, The Creation of a Classic. As you walk through the exhibit, you relive the story and get a good understanding how it was created. The exhibit itself is fascinating. I loved seeing the artistry and how complex it was for its time — 1937! It gives you a much better picture of the enormous undertaking this film required. It took Walt’s master storytelling plus an entire team to create his vision. When finished, the film tallied 32 animators, 1,032 assistants, 107 inbetweeners, 10 layout artists, 25 background artists, 65 special effects animators, and 158 inkers and painters! Now you know why the credits roll for so long. continued
