Morrison Hotel Gallery is honored to be hosting a comprehensive show spanning privileged access photographic perspectives of a true American legend, Frank Sinatra, to commemorate his centennial birth year. The exhibit, aptly titled The Sinatra Experience, will be curated by Frank Sinatra Enterprises and will show from Thursday, March 5th thru Thursday March 26th, at Morrison Hotel Gallery Soho (116 Prince Street)). The featured images will be available for purchase.
This treasure trove of an exhibit is culled from a refreshing cross section of sources to authentically capture Sinatra’s spirit, and reveal his journey from youthfully exuberant talent to one of America’s most beloved icons. The Sinatra Experience will contain a series of fascinating self-portraits taken by Frank himself in his early formative years, just before his appearances with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. It will also present a series of rare and never before seen photographs from the Sinatra Family Archive, the Capitol Records and Warner Bros. Records archives as well as images from other notable photographers. Finally, the exhibit will showcase a series of newfound photographs from the archives of the great British photographer Terry O’Neill. O’Neill worked closely with Sinatra for over 30 years, being granted access to the legend back stage and in private. The Sinatra Experience will coincide with the new multimedia GRAMMY Museum exhibition of Sinatra: An American Icon at the New York Public Library at Lincoln Center.
The Sinatra Experience is the first release of exclusive Sinatra fine art photographs in a joint venture with 1966 Americas. 1966 Americas focuses on helping people and companies build legacies and long-term sustainable businesses from their brands, IP, knowledge and experience across the Americas.
