“I only wish Marc could be here to see it.” – Disney Legend and Wife of Marc Davis, Alice Davis

On May 8, 2009, the Forest Lawn Museum, located in Glendale, California, hosted an exhibit called “The Art of Marc Davis,” featuring the works of Disney Legend and member of the Nine Old Men, Marc Davis. The exhibit featured work Davis did outside of Disney, mainly comprised of Greek mythology, ships, and harlequins. The exhibit was a long time dream for Davis’ wife Alice, as many people were unaware of the body of work Davis had outside of the studio, which he worked on in the evenings as he watched television. The show was held until July 26, 2009.
