The Art of Fantasia
and Other Disney Classics:
The David Yaruss Collection

July 26, 2014 – September 7, 2014

Enjoy this unprecedented debut collection of over 250 original Disney animation cels, concept sketches, painted backgrounds and storyboard drawings featuring beloved Disney characters including Pinocchio, Snow White, Peter Pan and Mickey Mouse in the Art of Fantasia and other Disney Classics.

These masterpieces from the Golden Age of Animation are shared by local San Diego collector, David Yaruss whose passion for collecting was first ignited in 1975 at one of the first Comic-Cons, held in the basement of the El Cortez hotel. Yaruss credits that experience with changing his life forever and kick-starting his passion for collecting original Disney animation art, comics, historical items and books that has grown into a collection he characterizes as “too precious not to share.”
