Join Jared Andrew Schorr at WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney® District on October 19th from 11am to 1pm. Find out more about WonderGround

Jared says this about the two pieces in the show: “I chose to do a piece based on the first Disney animated movie I ever saw and the one dearest to me, Bambi. The introduction of Bambi in the film is one of amazement and grace, and I find myself loving it more than any other character in a movie. I also wanted create a scene of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse partaking in my favorite activities, camping. Some of my best memories are sitting around a campfire with the people I love.”

Jared has exhibited before at WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney® District at the Disneyland® Resort. He was also an artist in residence there. I’m including the Monsters Inc pieces he completed while in residence and the Wall-E and Mickey pieces were completed for an earlier gallery exhibition.

When asked about the residency experience, Jared said: “When Disney's WonderGround asked me to participate in their artist in residency I was both excited and apprehensive. I thought who would want to see me hunched over some paper. But I agreed to do it and I met amazing people every weekend, making me reexamine my work through other people's eyes which energized me and my work. I really love what I do and I’m excited about what I am doing now and what the future holds.”
