“All that Glitters: The Crown Jewels of the Walt Disney Archives” debuted today at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, California. The exhibit will run through June 19th, 2022 and is a completely new exhibition that allows guests to view jewelry and accessories from movies and shows including “Loki” and “Titanic”. Here are photos our reporter took from a preview with a sampling of the collection!
The Bowers Museum says of the exhibit,
“All That Glitters’ three main sections each explore different facets of how jewelry is used to tell stories: “Jewelry Informs Character” explains what wearable accessories tell viewers about characters; the “Feature Vault” offers a jaw-dropping look at the most prized jewelry and accessories inside the Walt Disney Archives; and “Reflections on Reality” includes displays that tie earrings, cuff links, rings, tie pins, and more back to the Disney films and parks that they originated from.”
All That Glitters: The Crown Jewels of the Walt Disney Archives is curated by the Walt Disney Archives in conjunction with the Bowers Museum. Director of the Walt Disney Archives, Becky Cline talked about this second exhibit they have done with the Bowers Museum. “This is a very special exhibit for us. We have so many wonderful things in our collections, and some of them are very small and don’t get noticed as much in the films…”.
The exhibition pieces can be found in cases around the room.
The pieces are varied, and include this brooch set worn by Disney princesses for Disneyland’s 50th anniversary celebration.
