Santa Barbara Museum of Art features new Hollywood photo exhibition

The Santa Barbara Museum of Art presents “Made in Hollywood: Photographs from the John Kobal Foundation.” The new exhibition, running from July 12 – Oct. 12, showcases more than 90 original vintage prints by photographers working in Hollywood from 1920 – 1960. The collection of works in the exhibition are chosen from The John Kobal Foundation, a fine art archive of more than 4,500 original vintage photographs featuring the major studios and stars from the late teens until about 1960. 

  The Foundation is the legacy of John Kobal, who was among the pioneering generation of Hollywood historians and among the first to examine seriously the photographs taken to promote the stars, the films, and Hollywood as place.
