Visions of OZ — A Celebration of Art from Over the Rainbow
In 1900, author L. Frank Baum and illustrator W.W. Denslow published “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” spawning a universe that has delighted and inspired generations with a multitude of books, movies and stage plays for well over a century.
On March 3rd, 2013, Creature Features pays tribute to this enduring universe with Visions of OZ — A Celebration of Art from Over the Rainbow, a multi-media gallery exhibit showcasing over 100 works of art from artists in the fields of film & TV, children’s book illustration, fine art and comics.

The exhibit opens on Sunday, March 3rd from 12 noon to 4:30pm at the Heritage Square Museum, 3800 Homer Street, Los Angeles, CA and runs every Friday, Saturday and Sunday thru March 31st.
This unprecedented month-long event will feature work from a wide range of media, including illustrations, paintings, sculptures, and even full-sized recreations of some of your favorite characters from the beloved 1939 MGM musical starring Judy Garland.
The event will also showcase a dazzling display of historical memorabilia, including rare editions of the original Baum books, concepts and artwork from various unproduced Oz-themed film & TV projects, props from the many film adaptations, including Disney’s upcoming OZ — The Great and Powerful and many more surprises.
