Ladies Who Lunch: Happy Birthday Marilyn!

It is  hard to believe that this past June 1st marked what would have been Marilyn Monroe’s 85th Birthday!  Almost 50 years since her passing, her image is still is as powerful and vibrant as ever.  With fans around the world who are still in love with the screen legend, her legacy continues.

In honor of Marilyn’s 85th Birthday, the Andrew Weiss Gallery in Beverly Hills, California is presenting a new exhibit titled quite simply “Happy Birthday Marilyn”.  The exhibit consists of photos of Marilyn Monroe taken by some of the most important photographer’s of her time, including George Barris, Milton Greene, Bert Stern and William Carroll.

Not only did we get the chance to interview gallery owner Andrew Weiss about the exhibit, but we had a special treat.  We got the opportunity to sit down and speak with renowned photographer George Barris and his daughter Caroline Barris!
The exhibit is opened on June 1st, Marilyn’s Birthday and will run until August 13th.
