A new mural featuring Spaceship Earth has debuted for the 2024 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts at Walt Disney World.

The new mural titled, 'Drawing on Inspiration: 4 Imagineers Paint Spaceship Earth,' features artwork from current Walt Disney Imagineers, showcasing the iconic EPCOT centerpiece in their own individual way.


You can find the mural near the entrance of Connections Cafe next to Guest Relations.

Here is the full text of the mural.

DRAWING ON INSPIRATION: 4 IMAGINEERS PAINT SPACESHIP EARTH

In the 1958 featurette 4 Artists Paint 1 Tree, four Disney artists use varying techniques and methods to depict a single oak tree. With results as different as the creators themselves, the final paintings showcase each artists one-of-a-kind approach and point of view.

In the spirit of this classic film, four current Walt Disney Imagineers have used their diverse artistic talents to paint Spaceship Earth, each telling the story of this beloved attraction as only they can.

May these works encourage you to find the artist within - and inspire you to celebrate your own unique perspective.

I should have posted this sooner, but the stage design for the Disney on Broadway concerts has gotten a nice facelift and is far more elaborate than it's been in the past, with multiple video monitors, the lit stairs, etc.

It's a shame they never used the audio from Splashtacular it would have been a great use since it's the characters singing about the colors in the show....And a great nod to a defunct show seeing it in the original spot with the lights would be impressive.

Saw these guys perform in person, and they were great. Well worth you time to stop by and catch a show! 🙂 -

I made a quick trip to Disney just for the Arts Festival. Saw the last night of Gavin & Heidi and the first night of Ashley and L. Steven. Went to all 3 concerts each night and WOW - better than ever. Ashley Brown is performing Feed the Birds this year! Also got to watch Trevor Carlton paint Minnie, Donald, and Winnie the Pooh. Looked at lots of incredible art and really had a lovely time.

Some more photos from the Festival today… Had to take a shot of Joel’s nice painting. I met him waiting in the single rider line for Disneyland’s ‘Splash Mountain’ some years ago. We started talking about Tony of all people….and then artwork. Quite a guy. Mission: Space chalk art starting to wash away in the rain …. A work in progress, sadly this also was washed completely away in the rain today. Looked great in person…the colors were so bright and eye catching!
