The Kinsey Collection Opens at Epcot in 2013

Filed in: Epcot

Starting in late winter 2013, the American story of determination, courage, hope, struggle and inspiration will be told through more than 40 pieces of art, artifacts, books, sculptures and documents on display at the Walt Disney World Resort. At Epcot, the American Adventure pavilion will be home to the Kinsey\'s personal treasures of African-American art and history, amassed from their travels to 90 countries and dating back to the 17th century. The Kinsey Collection is the intersection where art and history meet, a virtual history book opened wide, giving voice to untold stories of accomplishment and contribution. After previews during African-American Heritage Month in February, the Kinsey Collection is scheduled to open in March 2013. The Kinsey Collection, at the American Heritage Gallery, will be included in Epcot admission. Seen here: Untitled, 1951 by artist Hughie Lee-Smith. (credit: Bernard and Shirley Kinsey Collection)
