Kurt and Joseph Campbell

Kurt (to the left, wearing the embroidered vest) greatly respected mythologist Joseph Campbell's work and writings. Campbell, like Kurt, saw patterns in mythology that crossed cultural boundaries and pointed to the essential unity of human experience and imagination. In this photo during an event in the early 70s, Campbell is sitting among the students at Sacramento State University..

Disney's "Artistic Eye" Project

In 1981, Walt Disney Productions enlisted Kurt to help them in a project to connect the world of fine art to children, "to demystify art and make it relevant to our young audience...." Specifically, Kurt (along with other contributors) prepared remarks under the title "Turning youngsters on to art".
