Amazing Art: Art of the Hollywood Backdrop - Cinema's Creative Legacy


North by Northwest (91' x 30'), Mount Rushmore, MGM Studios (1959).

Art of the Hollywood Backdrop: Cinema’s Creative Legacy honors the unsung heroes who created these monumental canvases for the camera, going back almost 100 years. These artists were the backbone of the film industry.

The first museum show dedicated to Hollywood’s painted backdrops, the grandest illusions ever created for the movies, makes its world premiere in South Florida (April 20 ‒ January 22) at the Boca Raton Museum of Art

The exhibition was originated by the Boca Raton Museum of Art and is co-curated by Thomas A. Walsh and Karen L. Maness, who played pivotal roles among a group of passionate Hollywood insiders to salvage these American treasures.

The Museum will present a series of events and educational presentations for the community throughout the run of the exhibition. Learn more about this special programming at
