I can’t get enough of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. I believe I have been around the world at least five different times this year! My favorite foods kiosks are Hawai’i, Australia and South Korea (hello, lettuce wrap!). A great place to start is at the Festival Center located in Future World next to Mission: SPACE. This themed area is home to food demonstrations, special activities, and an extensive merchandise location (which I previously discussed). If you enjoy fine art, there is a section within the Festival Center called “The Art of Food and Wine.” This store-within-a-store showcases artwork from several talented artists including Noah, Heather French, Patryk Poslednik, Liné Tutwiler, William Silvers and others.
Artwork from Disney Design Group character artist Brian Blackmore recently joined this section at the Festival Center. You may recall my conversation with Brian back in early September about his artwork found at the Italy Pavilion at Epcot. We recently introduced some canvas wrapped giclées based on that art. Brian also created one-of-a-kind original paintings based on his four designs. Each of these original works will measure 2-feet by 4-feet, and will be introduced starting October 26.
If you are headed to the Festival in the coming weeks, please stop by the Festival Center to meet Brian during these dates and times:
- Friday, October 26 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
- Saturday, October 27 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
- Saturday, November 3 from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
- Sunday, November 4 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
