    Mary Blair Murals in TL still underneath?

    I know from 1967 to like 1997 they had murals in Tomorrowland by Mary Blair that were replaced.

    I heard that the Blair murals are still surviving in preserved condition underneath the current murals? Is this true?

    I don't want them back (totally out of theme), but they were beautiful, and it'd be nice to know they are still okay.

    Is intact the proper term for the one that remains? I was under the impression that they drilled the current one right through the old one...leaving it not intact, but there at least. I don't want them back either, though...they don't seem at all like what Tomorrowland is to me any more.

    They're not there anymore, but if you look at a park map, they're still showing a hint of the Mary Blair one. I can't help but think someone did this on purpose to keep some homage to it but it's probably an oversight.

    Does anyone have a photo/scan of that map?

    I used to love that mural when I was a little girl. And I think that mural really represents what our "World of TOmorrow" should become-- a real coming together of people from all over the world into one global community. If they moved IASW into Tomorrowland, I wouldn't be surprised.

    I think it's a realistic view of the world of tomorrow.

    I remember that mural well too, it was such a great time going on the PeopleMover and having it pointed out as a symbol of the children of tomorrow or something like that. It gave Tomorrowland that optimistic hope for the future that it so sorely needs now. Mary Blair's work was so original, and pretty much set the entire tone for Disney artwork in the mid-50's and 60's.

    I am as far away from an art fanatic as you can get, I mean I can't get into it for a second. But with Mary Blair's work, I just can't get enough of it. She was such an artistic genius...no wonder Walt liked her work so much.
