We last saw arts·meme friend Mike Kaplan at the wonderful display of his vast collection of dance movie posters at the William Rolland Gallery of Fine Art at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks.
Now Mike turns up in the company of lovely Marge Champion, the special honoree of his current poster show, GOTTA DANCE!, at Jacob’s Pillow this summer.
GOTTA DANCE!, an extraordinary exhibit of vintage posters from around the world, features Hollywood dancing stars Gene Kelly, Rita Hayworth, Cyd Charisse, Eleanor Powell, Astaire & Rogers, the Nicholas Brothers and more.
In honor of the effervescent Champion’s 95th birthday, GOTTA DANCE! includes a special six-poster salute to Marge and Gower Champion. Forever young!
A lavishly illustrated limited edition art book has been published to coincide with the exhibition. arts·meme‘s Debra Levine is the proud contributor of a Foreward to this sumptuous publication. The book is now available on line and at the Jacob’s Pillow store.
