Art of the Hollywood Backdrop @ Boca Raton Museum of Art

(April 20, 2022 - January 22, 2023)In almost every feature film of Hollywood, from "North by Northwest" to "Cleopatra" to "The Sound of Music," painted backings have convinced moviegoers that what they are seeing—whether the fantastic roads of Oz, the presidents of Mount Rushmore, or ancient Egyptian kingdoms—is absolutely real. These backings are at once intended to transport the audience and yet remain unseen for what they really are. The "Art of the Hollywood Backdrop" exhibition introduces America's unrecognized master scenic artists.
