The interior of the program was a list of the panelists and a copy of the essay about Mary Blair written by Lella Smith for the "Mary Blair: A Life's Choice, A Mother's Job" in Tokyo. Ms. Smith is the Creative Director of the Walt Disney Animation Studio's Animation Research Library.
The first panel was with special guests Alice Davis (left), a costume designer at Disney, and Maggie Ricchardson (right), a niece of Blair (photos were not allowed at the panel.. this image is from Google images):
The women shared their recollections of Mary Blair the person, as well as the artist. They both admired Blair's tremendous sense of personal style. Alice stated that Mary Blair was the type of woman who could have gone shopping at the Salvation Army, but with her way of carrying herself and styling her outfit, she would have made the ensemble look like it had come from Saks Fifth Avenue. Blair was known for her designer clothes and perfume. Her niece recalled how Mary Blair wore capes! (and she didn't know anyone else, then or now, who wore capes).
