Disney have announced a Mickey Mouse exhibition to celebrate his 90th Anniversary.
A new pop-up interactive art exhibit that will include work from British artist Michael Bosanko and celebrity photographer Rankin will be opening in New York named 'Mickey: The True Original Exhibition' in honour of the popular cartoon icon's 90th birthday.
The Disney exhibition will feature exclusive original artwork from contemporary artists including American painter, Kenny Scharf, 60, Los Angeles based artist, 43, Amanda Ross-Ho and 47-year-old American visual artist, Shinique Smith, with more artists to be announced in the coming weeks.
Bob Chapek, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products said: "As Walt said, 'I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse'.
"From 'The True Original Exhibition' to a year-long celebration in our parks around the world, we are honouring the deep connection that families and fans have made with Mickey and Minnie Mouse for nearly a century."
LA designer Darren Romanelli who curated the project, added: "To me, Mickey is reminiscent of everything good from my childhood. As I've come into my own as a designer, I feel a true sense of passion for this project.
"Every inch of the experience - from the artists participating to the different mediums featured to the building layout, was thought through with a level of detail and creativity we could only achieve with Mickey Mouse as our muse."
A-List photographer Rankin, 52, recently photographed supermodel Kate Moss for limited-edition book 'Mickey Mouse & Me', which was auctioned on eBay for £50 a copy to raise money for children's hospice charity 'Together for Short Lives'.
