Disney Imagineer Joe Rohde will speak this week at the Orlando Museum of Art during its 1st Thursdays series. Rohde, who led the creative team responsible for designing Disney's Animal Kingdom, will be giving two presentations that focus on the important role that art plays in bringing a Disney theme park from concept to reality. The event takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. on Aug. 3 at the museum in downtown Orlando. Specifically, the evening will emphasize its theme of "Celebrating the Beauty of the Natural World" with various aspects related to the new Pandora - The World of Avatar at Animal Kingdom. Participants will sample complimentary food and treats inspired by Animal Kingdom, featuring select items from Satu'li Canteen, the counter service restaurant inside Pandora - The World of Avatar. They also can enjoy listening to live entertainment inspired by the theme park. Rohde's presentations will take place at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. The 1st Thursdays event costs $15 for adults and $5 for children. It's free for kids ages 3 and younger. Orlando Museum of Art members also have complimentary admission. Tickets can be purchased on the website.
