As 2014 comes to an end, D23 is excited to announce its 2015 Annual Member Gift: a reproduction of a rarely seen Disneyland pitch portfolio. The gift, created in honor of the 60th anniversary of Disneyland, is based on an original piece of artwork from the Walt Disney Archives collection that features more than 20 pieces of stunning concept artwork used to sell the park to prospective licensees on the East Coast.
Uniquely colored photographic reproductions of artwork that was originally designed by such artists as Bruce Bushman, Peter Ellenshaw, Harper Goff, and Herb Ryman have been recreated in the gift. “These beautiful and detailed works of art served to convince organizations to bring their businesses and products to the park,” writes Disney Legend and Walt Disney Archives founder Dave Smith on a notecard included with each gift, “forging relationships that helped bring Walt’s dream for Disneyland to reality.”
The gift will be available to all members who join—or renew their 2014 membership—at the Gold level in 2015. For more information about the benefits of D23 Membership, click here.
