Mary Blair Exhibit to Open May 13

Even if you're not familiar with the name Mary Blair, chances are you would recognize some of her work. The artist played a key role in the development of "it's a small world" which remains one of Disney's most-loved attractions. Now, for the first time, her work will be up for display at The Disney Gallery.

The new exhibit, which will start May 13 at the Disneyland-based gallery, will show works by Blair and feature the ride she helped bring to life. Here are a few pictures courtesy of the Disney Parks Blog that give an idea of what the exhibit will showcase.
