1st Thursdays @ Orlando Museum of Art – Pandora the World of Avatar

Pandora – Celebrating Beauty of the Natural World

The newly-opened Pandora – The World of Avatar has already awed many guests at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, but the fun does not end there. Walt Disney World Resort is supporting the Orlando Museum of Art for its 1st Thursdays event on August 3, 2017. Including direction from Walt Disney Imagineering’s Creative Executive, Joe Rohde, the Museum will be transformed into Pandora with extra special touches that can only be seen that evening. In addition to local artists submitting their artwork to win awards for the “Pandora” theme “celebrating the beauty of the natural world,” work by Disney Imagineers and artists will also be on display. To make the night even more special, Walt Disney World Resort will offer complimentary food reflecting the atmosphere of Pandora.
