    Do you have a picture? that would be great!

      I remember seeing SOMEWHERE on the net pictures of them covering the Mary Blair murals (I believe )during one of Tomorrowlands renovations. The murals were still there although they were damaged by beams used to hold up the current murals that hide them today.

      I agree they dont really go with the current Tomorrowland theme but I think they are a work of art and should be removed from their current location and reconstructed somewhere else in the park. Since they remind everyone of 'Its a Small World" around that area may be the place to display them. Do I see Disney taking such measures to preserve this work of art...NO. But its really something that should be done.

      Another chatter said something about some of the tiles from the mural being used in a paris resteraunt? If anyone can expand on that id be interested to hear more about that.

        The only way to get the tiles off the wall is to destroy them - it's a simple, but sad fact. The one on the Star Tours one has been completely destroyed, but they went to great pains to keep the Buzz one at least partially intact.
