Disney Legend to Legend: Marty Sklar Discusses Herb Ryman

Originally posted on the DIS Unplugged: When I first met Disney Legend Marty Sklar, retired Executive Vice President and Ambassador for Walt Disney Imagineering, he sat down to discuss a small portion of his 54-year career working with and for Walt Disney.  Marty is now president of his own company, Marty Sklar Creative, Inc., and is one of the founders of and current president of the Board of Directors for the Ryman-Carroll Foundation (now Ryman Arts).  Ryman Arts is a foundation created in 1989 as a tribute to fellow Disney Legend and artist Herb Ryman (1910-1989).  Click here to listen to my interview with Marty Sklar discussing the importance and significance of Herb Ryman to the Disney Company, and how Ryman Arts continues his legacy.
