Museum members, invited guests and VIP's all gathered at The Museum last night for the official reception of Small Lens Big Lives...The Hollywood Shorties exhibit.
Attendees enjoyed meeting several original Hollywood Shorties, actors and stuntmen that offered up some stories about their careers.
A video loop shows many of the charitable events that were played on the basketball court and baseball diamond.
There was an unveiling of a bust created by artist and sculptor, one-time valley resident, Howard Lazar. Howard provided an overview on the making of the bust, the challenges and enjoyment in creating this nice piece of artwork that he donated to The Museum.
Special guests included Howard Lazar, Ryan Steven Green, filmmaker and creator of the documentary The Hollywood Shorties, Braden Barty, son of Billy Barty (and his family) and Mark Povinelli, President of the Little People of America.
Attendees also enjoyed walking through The Museum along with plenty of food to enjoy.
A great time was had by all!
Much thanks to all board members and especially Jackie Langa that worked tirelessly on the creation of this exhibit and Ryan Steven Green who has provided the artifacts on loan to The Museum for this exhibit.
