SLOMA screens documentary on artist who brought Disney's Bambi to life



Everyone has seen the classic Disney animated film Bambi, but few can name the artist behind the iconic deer.

Learn all about Tyrus Wong, the Chinese American artist who brought Bambi to life, at a screening of the documentary Tyrus at the SLO Museum of Art March 19 at 7 p.m.

Until his death in 2016, Wong was one of the last remaining artists from the golden age of Disney animation. The quiet beauty of his Eastern influenced paintings caught the eye of Walt Disney, who made Wong the sketch artist for Bambi.
