The Falcon Theatre, Walt Disney Co., Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon are among the creative forces that will contribute to an art exhibit at the Burbank Creative Arts Center that opens Aug. 5.
The center is celebrating 100 years of the city’s incorporation and wanted to feature prominent businesses that reflect how they bring art to the community and the world, said the center’s Regi Cutler.
“We’ve never done something like this before, and we thought it would be great to showcase these businesses because they do so much for the city,” Cutler said.
Lockheed Martin Aeronautics and Warner Bros. Studios are also exhibiting.
Walt Disney has about 30 pieces of art in the exhibit, said Lella Smith, creative director of the animation research library.
She said whenever it’s possible, Disney reaches out to the city of Burbank.
“They are a big part of the studio,” she said. “The studio has been here since 1939 and Disney is important to Burbank.”
