Digital Artist Mickey Wright admitted today that he has hidden "Mickeys" in his artwork. "My ex-boss will always be a part of who I am and including him in my art...even if he's hidden...seems appropriate and is meant as a token of my appreciation for the wonderful experience I had working for him. Love you, Boss!" Finding "Hidden Mickeys" has become a favorite activity of Disney families and guests. The well-recognized shape (one big circle and two smaller ones) is incorporated into Disney architecture, carpeting, ironwork. and even the shrubbery. One was even found as a rust-spot on an old frying pan hanging on one of the Jungle Cruise boats. Books have been published to guide guests for where to look for them and it is not unusual to note entire groups working together to track down as many "Hidden Mickeys" as they can. When Mickey the artist worked at Disneyland, he had the e...
Fort Worth, TX - October 9th, 2013
September 11, 2013 was chosen purposefully for the launch of Mickey Wright's "Rivers of the World Art Gallery". "9-1-1 is a day that is remembered for and will forever be connected to atrocity, tragedy, and evil. While I can never forget the terrible scenes of human suffering that day, and don't want to ever forget the victims or the heroes, I decided i wanted to take back at least part of the day that the terrorists took from me. I decided to purposely do something positive that I could also mark the day with. What I decided to do was launch a gallery of some art creations I have been working on for awhile. From now on, for me, 9-11 will not only be remembered as the day terrorists attacked innocent victims in New York, Washington D.C., Virginia, and Pennsylvania, but also as the day I opened my Rivers of the World Art Gallery." Even before working at Disneyland, Mickey loved the ...

Now, when you enter my Rivers of the World Art Gallery, this welcome will greet you: “Welcome aboard the World Famous Jungle Cruise, folks! I’m Captain Mickey. I’ll be your skipper, guide, and dance instructor for the next 9-to-12 weeks as we explore the Rivers of the World.” Thus began eight minutes of hilarious dialogue (hopefully) as Mickey took Disneyland guests down the river and through the jungle on the adventure of their lives. As a Jungle Cruise skipper, I would point out the obvious: a tiger; an elephant; a family of lions protecting a sleeping zebra! And, at least one day, my spiel was award winning. On February 6, 2009, six finalists each took a turn giving a special group of judges the adventure of their lives. And on that particular day, for that particular group of judges, my spiel was deemed " very funny". To my surprise and joy, I was one of two skippers ch...
