The UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum is pleased to host PAINTED PICTURES, an exhibition of original photographs by famed actor/director/comedian/singer/ philanthropist, Jerry Lewis. The legacy of Jerry Lewis is undeniable in the history of film and entertainment; his influence has been multi-generational. An avid and obsessive photographer throughout his entire lifetime, Jerry Lewis created this unique body of work during the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Known to always have a camera by his side, his knowledge and use of the camera as a vehicle for expression is notably extraordinary. It is the strength of these works that allows this multi-talented entertainer to add the title of “artist/photographer”.
The UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum will host the Jerry Lewis Film Festival. The museum will present weekly screening of films of Jerry Lewis starting with the Nutty Professor on Thursday May 15th at 6pm. Please check the website for the full schedule to be announced separately. The films are free to the public.
