Behind the Scenes: Creating This Year’s Festival of the Masters Commemorative Plate

posted on November 11th, 2011 by Thomas Smith, Editorial Content Director, Disney Parks

What better way to start a weekend than a visit to Downtown Disney for the kick off of the Festival of the Masters show. I’m already here at the Festival this morning and art lovers are in for a treat this year.

This Year’s Festival of the Masters Commemorative Plate

If you’re joining us this weekend, you’ll have the opportunity to win an amazing, one-of-a-kind Festival of the Masters commemorative glass plate. It’s a piece of art that’s created when small particles of sand hit the plate glass at high speeds. And today we’re sharing a behind-the-scenes look at how it’s done.

Tom Arribas and his Arribas Brothers artists have been creating the plate for many years as a giveaway to one lucky guest during the Festival of the Masters show. The designs are always different and this year’s artwork is impressive. Be sure and stop by the Arribas Bros. shop at Downtown Disney during the show and see for yourself.
