The artist Shag will be at Disney World in Orlando today (Monday, January 31, 2011) signing deluxe art prints of his Disney World 40th Anniversary Map. This is the only day the print will be available until Shag’s entire Walt Disney World 40th Anniversary art collection is unveiled later this summer. The sneak peak and signing will take place today at the Main Street Gallery at the Magic Kingdom from noon to 2PM. The Deluxe Print dimensions are 16×20 inches, complete with double mat, and retail for $35.
The Disney World 40th Anniversary Map artwork, which you can view above, incorporates elements from the Magic Kingdom, Disneyâ€™s Contemporary Resort, Disneyâ€™s Polynesian Resort, and Disneyâ€™s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, all with Shag’s original style.
There will also be special Disney theme park merchandise to commemorate this event that incorporates elements from Shag’s Disney-themed paintings, including charm bracelets, designer apparel for men and women, postcard sets, as well as home goods such as a tumbler set and coaster collection.
Shag has also created artwork for the Disney Cruise Line, with pieces created especially for the Disney Dream.
If you’re a fan of Shag and Disney, this is a great opportunity to obtain some rare items. I wish I could be there, as I love the art of Shag and I think you all know how much I love Disney and Disney World. Anyone who wants to pick something up for me, feel free!!! No, seriously, if you attend the sneak peek/signing, email us a report and/or photos from the event and we’ll publish here at Geeks of Doom.
