  • Video Mary Blair's Tomorrowland Mosaic Tiles...

    Here's a couple of YouTube videos, one from [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1_kZXG2qs4&feature=related"]1967 [/ame]and another from [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXmHJLifufo&feature=player_embedded"]1986[/ame] regarding Mary Blair's Tomorrowland mosaic tiles. This might be of interest to folks who are fans her art and the preservation of said art.

    Well I guess that answers the question of whether the tiles are still behind the facades. If they did that now, they'd have tarps covering it from our eyes (and cameras).
    I want you to know, nobody cares more about your stupid problems than I do!

      One is gone. One is mostly there. But, at least as of three years ago, one was still mostly there. In very bad shape, but there. I believe that the removed mosiac tiles were crushed/broken into coin-sized pieces and reused (as an homage) in a new mural in Disneyland Paris.

        I miss those murals. By far my favorite incarnation of Tomorrowland.

        Don't they have a Mary Blair mural somewhere at UCLA? Someone from this site had an update from a location where Blair artwork was still intact. I have been there for two years and have never bothered to ask, assuming that no one on campus really knew.
