Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast opens March 17 and to celebrate they’re having a full-fledged gallery art show complete with original works, prints, and more. It’s called Be Our Guest: An Art Tribute to Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and, as you can see below, the pieces are utterly gorgeous.

It opens March 11 at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, Calif. Full details here. If you aren’t going to be in Southern California Saturday night, don’t worry. We’ve got a bunch of pieces from the show, which features over 40 new pieces in all different mediums, all celebrating the new version of the film.
