Photographs from the John Kobal Foundation at the Norton Museum of Art

The Norton Museum of Art presents Made in Hollywood: Photographs from the John Kobal Foundation open December 12, 2010 – March 6, 2011.

Comprising 93 photographs by over 50 photographers, this exhibition is drawn from the London-based archive of the late author and collector John Kobal. It reveals the importance of photography in manufacturing the myth of Hollywood as a magical place, inhabited by glamorous stars, where dreams came true. Joan Crawford, Grace Kelly, and Audrey Hepburn, as well as Clark Gable, Marlon Brando, and Rock Hudson are among those whom Hollywood made into gods and goddesses, worshipped by fans throughout the world.

Organized by the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.
Local presentation of this exhibition is made possible in part through the generosity of Gilbert and Ann Maurer, Harris Private Bank and The Sydelle and Arthur Meyer Endowment Fund. Media support provided by WPBF TV25.
