Aboard the Dream: Forward Art

A lot has been written about the Enchanted Art on the Disney Dream–those moving portraits that shock and surprise you by moving and changing before your very eyes. But one of the things that Dan and I loved about sailing on the Dream was the non-kinetic art, hanging on each and every landing of each and every stairwell on the ship. They’re incredible and amazing, and I’ll be sharing one stairwell’s worth of art once a month for the next three months. Starting with the Dream’s Forward stairwell:
