When I was in San Francisco a couple weeks ago, I had the chance to see his retrospective “Water to Paper, Paint to Sky: The Art of Tyrus Wong”, which is on view at the Walt Disney Family Museum through February 3, 2014. I highly recommend the exhibition, which provides a fantastic overview of the many facets of Wong’s creative life. His early years and work on Bambi are well represented, but the exhibition did a weak job of showcasing the breadth of his career as a live-action production designer at Warner Bros., the studio where he spent the bulk of his professional film career. The show is still well worth attending, and for thos unable to attend, the exhibition catalog serves as a sastisfactory substitute.
