OPENING RECEPTION Elizabeth Taylor: Posters of a Legend
Tuesday July 07, 2009, 7:00 pm

Long considered to be among the most beautiful women in the world, Elizabeth Taylor offers much more than physical perfection. Throughout her film, television, and Broadway career, she has appeared in roughly 75 productions, earning two Academy awards and the adulation of fans worldwide. In her later years she has become an outspoken advocate for AIDS research.

MDPL member and guest curator Kendall S. Natvig guides us in a look at Taylor through the art of the movie poster. His collection of Taylor movie posters, numbering over 400 items, is one of the largest in the world. Natvig is a former literature professor with a published a novel (Perplejo, 1986), was a Fulbright Scholar in Africa, and has served on the board of the Miami Beach Cinematheque. He has an MA from the University of Iowa.

The exhibit is open daily weekdays from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm, throughout the month of July. Free admission.
