Staff Report

The public is invited to celebrate the works of famed artist Eyvind Earle, who was one of the lead artists on Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty,” at a royalty-themed event starting at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 6, at the Elverhoj Museum of History and Art in Solvang.

Earle once lived in the Santa Ynez Valley and was inspired by its beauty.

The museum is hosting the admission-free event in conjunction with the nonprofit Central Coast Film Society.

The Elverhoj Museum is currently hosting an exhibit of art by Earle and John Cody, which can be seen before and after the film is screened. For the celebration, there will be a special “Sleeping Beauty” display of Earle’s works, a guest speaker and a Princess theme for anyone who wants to attend “dressed to impress.”

The event is free, but donations are suggested. The festivities will be on the museum lawn, so visitors are welcome to bring chairs or blankets.

Doors open at 7 p.m., with the festivities at 7:30 p.m. Exhibits will be open the whole evening, and popcorn will be available. The Elverhoj Museum is at 1624 Elverhoy Way in Solvang.
