    Tribute to the Artwork of Jim Michaelson

    Jim Michaelson is best known for his prolific work with Walt Disney Imagineering, where he designed many of the theme park chain's most beloved posters (including those for the Jungle Cruise, Big Thunder Mountain, The Disneyland Railroad, among many others), as well as groundbreaking Disneyland Paris Hotel.

    Outside of Disney, Jim was also a frequent collaborator with Legacy Entertainment, where he was involved in the early development stages of most of the company's projects.

    Unrivaled in his talent for bird's-eye sketches, Jim's contributions often went unseen as they would subsequently be painted over by illustrators. Here are twenty never-before-seen pieces that showcase his one-of-a-kind talents.

    Jim Michaelson passed away in 2019.

    For over a year, Jamestown business leaders have been smitten with the idea of building an amusement park along Interstate 94 to accompany the existing National Buffalo Museum and attract tourists to a region without many major draws.

    The proposed Buffalo City Park would feature bison-themed rides, attractions and entertainment venues, according to previous reporting by the Jamestown Sun. The prospect of building on publicly owned land and receiving financial backing from the state has a herd of local developers ready to run with the plan.
    Supporters of putting state funds toward the project, many of them Jamestown-area lawmakers like Montpelier Republican Rep. Craig Headland, said the park along the busy thoroughfare would be a "tourism gateway." A theme park design company estimated a few months ago that more than 200,000 people would visit the park in the year after it opened, though legislators opposed to the plan characterized the projection as overly optimistic. The company's report also says the park could open up in 2024 and earn $2.3 million in first-year profits.

    The $5 million allotment from the state would come only after the project meets a series of benchmarks, giving taxpayers cover if the park never materializes, proponents say.

    The park promoters would first have to secure a $60 million loan from the State Investment Board to build the facility. At that stage, money managers and financial experts would have to be convinced the project is a sound investment of public dollars.

    Could that be the Intamin that’s now being installed at Seaworld, which is just next door?
