This Thursday at 6 p.m., the Orlando Museum of Art will introduce the art behind the creation of Pandora- The World of Avatar. For the month of August, the museum will spotlight the wildly popular land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and kick off the festivities with a presentation by Pandora’s lead project manager, Joe Rohde. The famous Imagineer will unveil the artwork and discuss the influence art has on creating a theme park land.
We often get caught up in the business side of building a themed attraction so this exhibit will offer a fresh new perspective on the operations by highlighting the important role that art has in the amusement parks we know and love. Using artwork that showcases the underlying themes and messages of the Animal Kingdom rather than the “making of” the land, Rohde plans on showing guests the inspiration of the land rather than how it was built. Guests will get to analyze the Animal Kingdom and Pandora – The World of Avatar at its roots and artistic connections.
Rohde will present at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. and admission is $15 for adults and $5 for kids. You can purchase tickets at the Orlando Museum of Art’s official website.
