The exhibit will feature over 80 original and limited edition animation characters such as Snow White, Mickey Mouse, Daffy Duck, Betty Boop and Fred Flintstone.
"It's immediately entertaining to anyone who ever sat in a movie theater or in front of a television set," Renaissance co-owner Pat Linkowski-Jander said.
The collection will remain on display through Aug. 30.
Interested visitors can also sign up for poetry and prose workshops to be held monthly at Andrew Carnegie Free Library in conjunction with the Gallery Walk series.
