Mickey Mouse officially becomes a nonagenarian, Art exhibition opened in New York to celebrate its birthday
Mickey Mouse, the funny animal cartoon character, finally turned 90. The mascot of The Walt Disney Company made his debut on November 18, 1928 when the short film 'Steamboat Willie' was premiered at Universal's Colony Theater in the city of New York on the same date.
A tweet was aired from the house of Walt Disney on Sunday, November 18 with stars sending Mickey Mouse best wishes for officially becoming a nonagenarian. The images of this most magical mouse on T-shirts, watches, lunch boxes etc. are still highly popular and liked by varied generations, and the telltale mouse ears are still worn by the kids visiting Disney theme parks today.
To make the birthday of Mickey Mouse quite special, Disney unveiled an art exhibition in New York named Mickey: The True Original Exhibition. Sprawling across an area of over 16,000 sq. ft., the new art exhibition is featuring both historic and contemporary work from the renowned artists across the globe. The exhibition will continue till February 10, 2019.
There is no iota of doubt that the cartoon character and its several adventures in the last 90 years have inspired countless artists who gave efforts to grow up for the same studio that brought him to life. And the 63-year old world famous animator Eric Goldberg is no exception in the list.
