On March 29, 2019, we celebrated 25 years since Celebration was officially incorporated on March 29, 1994 with an unveiling of a drawing created by Michael McCann for the 25th anniversary. Michael McCann’s artwork is located throughout Celebration, as he was commissioned by the original Celebration planners and designers to create images and architect renderings even before the first home in Celebration was built.
The original little girl on a bicycle sketch was part of a series of small concept drawings. I was inspired by a video at the Lake Buena Vista Disney offices. Walt Disney himself talked about a property that they purchased next to Disney World; to me, this new community was the “American Dream.” That small sketch became the logo for Celebration. Twenty-five years later, I was commissioned to create an anniversary drawing. I didn’t have to go far for inspiration, the subject matter was right in front of me; my daughter, Cayli; my son, Joseph; and our dog, Spike.
