Disney Show Is Coming to Huntington

"I make pictures for entertainment," Walt Disney once said, "and the professors tell me what they mean."
Also on the Huntington's schedule is "Gee's Bend: Shared Legacy," a showing of two recently acquired quilts and a set of color etchings by artists of the Gee's Bend collective. It will run in two rotations for nearly a year starting Sep. 17, 2022, in the Scott Galleries of American Art.
After mulling over the nature of the Louvre (sort of a high-brow cultural version of Disney World), I now have a somewhat different take on aspects of pop culture and, in turn, museums that have the tone of a made-for-the-masses theme park. Call it Met Land on 5th Avenue or the Pei Pyramid at Louvre World.
