Join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Executive Vice President Randy Haberkamp, with special guest author Bruce Davis, the Academy’s former executive director, in conversation on Davis’s journey writing the recently released book The Academy and the Award: The Coming of Age of Oscar and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
The first three decades of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, its inception, and its influences are continually examined in Davis’s research. Theories of the Oscar statuette and its name are explored in the book’s many details. For this Gallery Conversation, special guests Haberkamp and Davis will discuss the significance of, and their connections to, the history and storytelling of the Academy Award.
This program will take place in the Netflix Lounge, on Level 2. Visitors are encouraged to view the Academy Awards History gallery in our Stories of Cinema exhibition.
A book signing will be available after the conversation.
