Rare Movie poster exhibit Tyler Museum of Art | Dallas Art News

Thrills, Chills, and Movie Stills at the Tyler Museum of Art | Dallas Art News:
Boris Karloff in The Bride of Frankenstein, 1935
"Remember When: Marvels and Memories from the Collection of Dr. James Clark. The exhibition will be on view at the Tyler Museum of Art from May 8 – August 14, 2011 and is the sixth exhibition in the “Tyler Collects” series, organized by the Museum to showcase private collections belonging to residents of Tyler."

“Most of the items included in this colossal exhibition are extremely rare examples,” said Ken Tomio, Curator of the Tyler Museum of Art. “Dr. Clark has spent decades searching for each piece, working with other collectors and through special auctions to refine his collection. Remember When is a unique and impressive presentation of materials which the public would normally not be able to enjoy at one time.”
Dr. Clark says that his fascination with movie posters stems from his high school job, when he worked for Interstate Theatres in Paris, Texas. His primary duties included changing out the movie posters and the theatre’s marquee. Over his thirty years of collecting, Dr. Clark has expanded his focus to include various items from the 1940s and 50s that recall prominent moments in American history as well as personal childhood memories.
