Disney has created a series of books known as the “Art Of” line, featuring incredible art from Pixar, Lucasfilm, Marvel, and everything in between.

The Walt Disney Company has produced some breath-taking movies over the years, but in both their live-action and animated worlds, the aesthetic of these cinematic universes is incredibly important. The creation of concept art and storyboards is, therefore, a crucial part of the production process.

New vinyl art in Chapel Hill aims to inspire diversity and community resilience

Downtown Chapel Hill welcomed the installation of four new vibrant pieces of vinyl art last week, featuring work by local artists Renzo Ortega, Luis Franco, Antonio Alanís and Kiara Sanders.

Melissa Bartoletta, Chapel Hill Community Arts & Culture marketing and communications coordinator, said once the pandemic hit, the division was looking for ways to reallocate money and brighten downtown spaces while highlighting the art of people of color in the community.

Nemerov is connected to Greenberg through his father, the poet Howard Nemerov, a lion of mid-century American culture who served two terms as the country’s poet laureate. While researching the book, the author delved into
