The one-of-a-kind art collection at Disney’s Riviera Resort will be comprised of more than 40 original pieces designed for the resort. The Mediterranean-inspired feature mural at Bar Riva, the open-air pool bar, is among these custom works of art exclusive to Disney’s Riviera Resort.

This piece is particularly special as it’s painted directly on the wall. Here’s a sneak peek at the making of this beautiful mural and some secrets revealed about the creation of this one-of-a-kind work of art.
