Mickey Mouse Turns 90
A pop up museum celebrates Mickey Mouse's 90 year anniversary.
Entertainment 17 Nov 2018

It was Walt Disney who once said: “If you can dream it, you can do it.”
Now, a pop up museum honoring his most popular cartoon character – Mickey Mouse – celebrates its 90 year anniversary. A new Mickey Mouse exhibition, Mikey: The True Exhibition, just opened in New York, which traces Mickey Mouse’s rise before Disney became the corporate megahouse it is today.

It also highlights Mickey Mouse’s influence on art and pop culture, as well as historic and contemporary work from renowned artists like comic legend Kenny Scharf, as well as Tanya Aguiñiga, Daniel Arsham and London Kaye.
“I wanted to put together a well-thought-out exhibition and balance that out with Disney’s archives, with Mickey being the muse the whole way through,” says the project’s curator, Darren Romanelli. “So there’s a healthy balance between a curated assortment from the archives and then a curated assortment from contemporary artists.”


It’s on until February 10, 2019 at 60 10th Avenue, New York, NY.
