One of my favorite things to do in Disney Springs is to visit the ever-evolving Disney Springs Art Walk, where local artists have the chance to tell their stories on a public canvas. Seasonal events always attract the best creative forces; there is always something new and wonderful to see. Marcella Swett’s artwork has been showcased both in Disneyland and Walt Disney World over the years, and the latest installation in Disney Springs has an incredible story to share.

Cast member Marcella Swett’s artwork, which was completed just in time for Black History Month, is titled Gullah Magic and reflects the story of the Gullah people who are descendants of West and Central Africa and still reside in the South today. Marcella has Gullah heritage in her family and wanted to share this story to help people learn more about the culture, which spans the South, includingin Florida. Elements of the Gullah culture can be found in the painting, such as the seagrass basket and grainofrice representing their art and traditions. You’ll also notice there are three faces in the painting symbolizing the past, present and future of the Gullah people.
