Welcome to the Main Street Art Corner!
The Main Street Art Corner was born out of necessity. After graduating from the Film Production program at USC School of Cinematic Arts, Michael Levey was hired by The Walt Disney Company where he was able to hone his creative talents on a number of exciting projects–”The Mickey Monthly” in the Disney Catalog for Consumer Products, Walt Disney World Quest: Magical Racing Tour for Disney Interactive, “Imagineer That!” for The Disney Channel and “Secrets of the Animal Kingdom” for ABC just to name a few.
Not one to give an impersonal place setting or set of towels for his little brother’s wedding, Michael looked for something more original to give as a wedding gift. When he didn’t find the perfect gift, he decided to create something himself–something that his brother and new wife would cherish forever. The result was a one-of-a-kind print for their home that also served as the program cover for their wedding. A few months later Michael gave a similar print to good friends for their baby shower. At the shower, the other guests started asking where they could get a similar piece for themselves, and the Main Street Art Corner was born.
Like everything we create, our name and logo have a sense of history about them. Pictured at the top of the page, the Art Corner was a retail store located in Tomorrowland at Disneyland from 1955 to 1966. During its operation, the Art Corner sold guides to learn to draw famous Disney characters, flip books, guest portraits, animation kits and original Disney animation cels priced starting at only 75¢! Sadly, in September of 1966, the Art Corner was closed to make way for the renovation of Tomorrowland.
So today, we’ve taken up the charge to provide personalized custom paper and canvas prints with just a touch of magic for everyone to enjoy. Each of our prints our made-to-order using only the finest archival paper and canvas and archival pigment inks using a museum-quality giclée printer. Thanks for stopping by the Main Street Art Corner!
