Home / Storybook Land / The other Walt

Peregoy01

I had the great opportunity to connect with Disney Legend and legendary spitfire, Walt Peregoy at his gallery opening at the Animation Guild’s Gallery 839.  Although most well known for his work as a background painter, Walt did have a hand in painting the original Storybook Land houses.  If you’ve seen any other interviews with Walt, you’ll know he doesn’t often hold back his opinion.  He did however think it was great that we cared enough about the buildings to take the time to restore them, and had nothing but wonderful things to say about the late Harriet Burns who built the houses he painted.  Walt Peregoy’s gallery show continues until Aug. 30th at The Animation Guild, 1105 North Hollywood Way, Burbank.
