Screenings of Ride to Heaven
In September, 2013, the A+D Museum (also known as the Architecture and Design Museam) in Los Angeles held a special screening of Ride to Heaven, as part of their exhibit “Never Built: Los Angeles” which featured Disney artist Bruce Bushman’s concept artwork for Bible Storyland.
It was wonderful to meet our enthusiastic fans at the A+D Museum exhibit, including two who had created a Bible Storyland park t-shirt and flags for the occasion!
