PHOTOS: “The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure” Replacing Walt Disney Imagineering Artwork at EPCOT

Today we learned more about the Black History Month offerings that would be arriving at Walt Disney World next week, including “The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure.” This exhibit will take guests on a musical tour of America to learn more about the inspiring genre of jazz. We were curious about where the exhibit would be held, as the “Creating Tradition” exhibit had not yet been removed ahead of the Monday opening of “The Soul of Jazz.” It turns out “Creating Traditions” will remain in its current spot, while “The Soul of Jazz” will be on the opposite side of the American Adventure, replacing the incredible Walt Disney Imagineering artwork that was previously displayed.


Right now, the pictures for “The Soul of Jazz” are covered up.


The paintings previously displayed were by Disney Legends such as Herb Ryman and Blaine Gibson. You can learn about some of the paintings on Disney Parks Blog.


The paintings by Imagineers have been on display since EPCOT opened.


There has been no official word regarding how long “The Soul of Jazz” exhibit will be on display or if these old works of art will be moved back into the American Adventure later on. Keep checking WDWNT for more updates.

    1. Being concerned about the removal of artwork made by legendary, creative people that has been there since opening day makes you racist? I’m sorry, I’m not sure putting up cartoon art makes you not racist either.

  1. I wonder what jazz greats who are little known to most people, like Lester Young, Charlie Parker, and Dodo Marmarosa (yes – check out his music!) would think if they had known that someday they would be featured by Disney.

  2. Quite honestly I’m sick to death of the constant changes. Used to be minor tweaks through the years but it’s been non stop for Igers reign. I’m not really into jazz so that doesn’t help much either. Thumbs down.
