Snow White at the Indianapolis Museum of Art
In late 1994, I was lucky enough to visit a special exhibit focused on the creation of Walt Disney's "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Collector Steve Ison provided artwork for the display. There was also a film shown featuring lost and deleted scenes, some of which had been colored, with some new voice work provided by actor Jim Cummings for the dwarfs.
Click on the pictures, then click them again to zoom in and read all the details (don't strain your eyes!).
The Education Division and the Publications Department from the Indianapolis Museum of Art created a great booklet for this event.
I sent one of these booklets to the Walt Disney Archives shortly after visiting the Museum.
More rejected Dwarf names: Psycho, Sleazy, Klepto, Gassy and Grabby. OK, maybe I made those up.
At Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Paris, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs are featured in a dark ride called "Snow White's Scary Adventures." The Disneyland version recently got some new effects and upgrades.
At Disneyland, Tokyo Disneyland, and Hong Kong Disneyland, you can escape the madness of the theme park crowds at the serene "Snow White Grotto" (complete with Wishing Well).
These days, there's quite a bit of buzz about a planned Seven Dwarfs Mine Car ride for Walt Disney World's Fantasyland. Hopefully there will be spiffy animatronic Dwarfs, shining diamonds, and careening through some caverns.
