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.
