Orlando Artist Everett Spruill Joins Disney Springs Art Walk at Walt Disney World

A colorful painting by an Orlando area African American artist became the latest artwork added to the art murals at Disney Springs this week. Painter, photographer and printmaker Everett Spruill unveiled his latest creation depicting his signature artistic themes at the Disney Springs Art Walk: A Canvas of Expression.

“Documenting the history of jazz and blues is one of my greatest passions,” said Spruill. “I am inspired by the cultures of the African diaspora, and I hope to give the viewer a concise look at the African experience as expressed through my own perspective and visual aesthetic.”

While Spruill’s artwork is the latest work to join the space, his mural joins the work of fellow Black artist and former Walt Disney Imagineer Laci Jordan. A Los Angeles designer, illustrator and creative director, Jordan concentrates on color, pop culture, the representation of marginalized people and the intersectionality that exists amongst these spheres.

Other artists whose murals are part of the Art Walk include Chad Mize, Stacey Aoyama and Eric Tan. In the coming months, additional works of art by artists with diverse backgrounds will be added to the dedicated space.

While at Disney Springs, music lovers can move from art to entertainment as they enjoy the return of Motown Mondays. They can also experience the Scat Cat’s Club at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort-French Quarter, where guests can enjoy nightly jazz groups in a New Orleans-styled lounge on select nights.  Also, guests will discover new elements within “The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure,” a recently refreshed exhibit in The American Adventure at EPCOT, which showcases the rich and dynamic evolution of jazz with a new programmed piano.
