Seventh St. The authors team up to tell the joyful and unique story of the trailblazing Disney artist Mary Blair. Blair lived her life in color: vivid, wild color. From her imag- inative childhood to her career as an illustrator, designer and animator for Walt Disney Studios, Blair wouldn’t play by the rules. At a time when studios wanted to hire men and think in black and white, she painted twinkling emerald skies, peach giraffes with tangerine spots and magenta horses that could fly. She painted her world. Visit swope.org or call 812-238-1676.
