Exhibition Opening – Art of the Hollywood Backdrop
April 20, 2022 – January 22, 2023
The world premiere of Art of the Hollywood Backdrop features original, full-sized matte painting backdrops used in Hollywood’s Golden Age in films like “Singin’ in the Rain,” “The Sound of Music,” “North by Northwest,” and “Ben-Hur.”
Long guarded by the major studios as special effect secrets, these monumental illusions will transport viewers into cinematic history and reveal the breathtaking technical painting and drawing virtuosity of artists creating specifically for the camera’s eye.
With 22 scenic backdrops, this exhibition honors the unsung artists who created these monumental canvases for Hollywood films, going back almost 100 years.
Exhibition Opening – Bonnie Lautenberg: Art Meets Hollywood
April 20 – August 21, 2022
Bonnie Lautenberg: Art Meets Hollywood features works from the artist’s Artistica! series, matching stills from Hollywood films with iconic artworks created the same year.
Works from luminaries such as Georgia O’Keefe, Roy Lichtenstein, and Willem de Kooning are cleverly combined with films such as “Grand Hotel,” “The Graduate,” and “Jaws.”
An esteemed photographer herself, Lautenberg was recently appointed to serve as a member of the President’s Advisory Committee on the Arts.
