"Painted Pictures" exhibition will run from May 9-August 16

The UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum is pleased to announce the opening of "Painted Pictures," an exhibition of original photographs by famed actor/director/comedian/singer/ philanthropist, Jerry Lewis.

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 exhibition is curated by Michele C. Quinn, MCQ Fine Art.

As a complement to the exhibition, "Painted Pictures," the UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum will also host the Jerry Lewis Film Festival. The museum will present weekly screenings of films by Jerry Lewis.

Each week a different film will be viewed during regular business hours.

Mon.-Fri. 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., & 3 p.m. and Saturday at 1 p.m. & 3 p.m.

All new films will kick off on Thursdays at 6 p.m.
