For the last few months, I’ve been swept away in a smoky world of shadows and suspicion, of private detectives and femme fatales. That is, I’ve been wrapped up in our Hollywood suite of exhibitions at the Skirball Cultural Center: Light and Noir: Exiles and Emigrés in Hollywood, 1933–1950, The Noir Effect, and our Light & Noir Holiday Pop-up Shop (learn more about the shop and the exclusive line of merchandise I designed for it in this SkirBlog post).
Being a classic movie lover and TCM addict from the womb, I had a lot of fun with these exhibitions, assisting in the coordination of the holiday pop-up shop, designing exclusive product, sourcing merchandise partnerships, and working on the decor and lighting for our donor opening event and our “holiday noir”-themed office party. I also wrote up this list of the “Top 10 Items in the Femme Fatale’s Arsenal” for SkirBlog. I could quote sarcastic celebrities, sassy pulp novel quips, and movie lines ALL DAY. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
