Oceanside Museum of Art presents "Rolly Crump: It’s Kind Of A Cute Story," an exhibition that celebrates the magical career of one of Disneyland’s original imagineers Rolly Crump.

This world premiere show, curated by Bob Self, highlights Crump's 65-year career as one of the most imaginative attraction creators in theme park history. As a nonconformist member of Walt Disney’s hand-picked Disneyland design team, Crump was the eccentric architect of endearing and enduring environmental art installations that have stood at the forefront of a vibrant pop-culture landscape for over half a century.

Crump’s contributions to It’s a Small World, The Enchanted Tiki Room, The Haunted Mansion, and other Disneyland attractions were trendsetting at the time of their creation, and they remain entirely relevant today.

This will be a journey through a world of spinning propellers, marching toys, living clocks, and talking tikis.

The exhibition runs Aug. 26, 2017 through Feb. 18, 2018. For additional details call (760) 435-3720.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
